Review for EDGE Youth Leadership (formerly NCYLS), San Leandro, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I first joined NCYLS, I didn't yet fully appreciate the far-reaching impact the annual seminar has. It truly inspires high school students to start or lead positive efforts in their communities. Students learn the skills and tactics required to lead and work in teams, and are inspired by community leaders who speak about their leadership and non-profit work. Students are then challenged to volunteer over 100 hours over the course of the next year, and in turn inspire other students at their schools and in their communities to do the same. If we plant the seed in a few students, the effects can be far-reaching.
