The National Council of Young Leaders is a diverse body of young leaders from across the United States who advise policy makers and funders on issues affecting low-income youth and their communities. From both urban and rural low-income areas, The National Council of Young Leaders reflects the enormous untapped intelligence and talent of our nation's young people.

They represent the 6.7 million young Americans who are neither in school nor working, but who pose enormous potential for our economy and our future if they are provided the opportunity to get on track and get ahead.

Though each council member has overcome different kinds of obstacles, they all share in common their participation in transformative youth programs that helped them become the successful young adults they are today.

The Nationa Council of Young Leaders is sponsored by YouthBuild, Jobs for the Future, Public Allies, The Corps Network, Year Up and the Youth Leadership Institute.
