For 26 years, the International Youth Leadership Institute (IYLI) has conducted leadership development and travel programs that have changed lives. We believe it's time for our visual representation to reflect IYLI's vibrant culture, as well as the confidence, camaraderie, and conscientiousness, we seek to imbue in our students.
We currently have a media kit, a Twitter account, a Facebook page, a new Snapc, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a press kit, a small list of press contacts,, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
Since 1990, IYLI has conducted nearly 50 programs in 17 countries in Africa, Caribbean, and Latin and South America. IYLI has covered 90% of the costs for their students to travel, in line with our belief that student's access to world-class experiences should not be limited by income.
The mission of the International Youth Leadership Institute is to nurture a new generation of visionary leaders from the African Diaspora who, inspired by their rich African heritage, are committed to leave a legacy in the world.
IYLI provides leadership development and low-cost to no-cost international travel to mainly Black and Latino high school students in the New York area. Our hallmark Heritage Summer Program take students to countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin & South America to experience the world from a new perspective.
