Don't know what a North Carolina Youth Leadership Forum (NCYLF) is?  Watch this short video to learn more.

We are a dedicated group of people of all ages and abilities in North Carolina. By holding a Youth Leadership Forum in our state's capital, we promote independence, peer relations, and advocacy among today's generation.

With the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, the current generation's opportunity for advancement is higher than it ever has been before. We seek to take full advantage of the blossoming movement to educate ourselves and others about disability history, the Independent Living Movement, important lawmakers, and other revolutionaries.

Youth LEAD NC, a nonprofit started by NCYLF alumni, has hosted the 2020 and 2021 NCYLF virtually and is planning to host the 2023 NC YLF in person.
