What is JrNYLC?
JrNYLC is a summer program for middle school students (grades 5-8) who have shown an aptitude and interest for inspiring others and becoming part of the next generation of great leaders.
For 2019, the program will be held in the Washington, DC area, with students staying at different locations based on their grade level.
During the program, attendees participate in hands-on simulations and workshops, including a civic engagement simulation where they work to create their own organization to create positive change in their communities. Over six days in and around the nation's capital, attendees experience the power of democracy among the monuments, are inspired by exemplary stories of courage, collaborate to discover solutions to some of the issues they face today, and spend a night in a museum among new friends. Attendees also hear from a real-life leader and inspirational speaker, Anthony Robles, who was born with one leg and went on to become three-time All-American wrestler at Arizona State University and was the 2011 NCAA National Champion.
Below are reviews broken out by source, which should help you make a more informed decision about having your child attend the program.
