Youth Leadership Institute

A peer program designed to prevent alcohol, tobacco and other drug use among high school students.


Builds communities where young people and their adult allies come together to create positive social change. As a community-based institute, the Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) develops and delivers community programs and professional, innovative training to young people, adult allies, and the systems that impact them. YLI's multi-faceted approach to youth development is rooted in its community-based programs, and its training model pulls directly from the experiences of these programs and grounds it in current youth development research, theory and practices.
