From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Junior National Young Leaders Conference or JrNYLC is a program for 6th, 7th and 8th grade students that takes place in the summer, spring, and fall in Washington, D.C., with an optional alumni conference in Boston the following year. Students from all over the United States are invited to learn about leadership by studying American History.


Students stay in hotels or conference centers for six days and visit museums throughout the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and many historical sites including the Vietnam Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, Lincoln Memorial. Students are divided into groups based on six leadership traits that they study during the conference: goal-setting, teamwork, respect, communication, problem-solving, and character.
