National Council on Youth Leadership - Greater Des Moines Area Chapter

NCYL is an exclusive leadership seminar that will be held September 14, 2020 at Drake University. Approximately 250 students from 23 area high schools have been selected to attend for their leadership qualities and scholastic record. 

Four central Iowa NCYL students will be chosen as Youth Leaders of the Year based upon their application, essay, and seminar participation. These four students will receive an expenses-paid trip to the national NCYL conference, Town Meeting on Tomorrow, in St. Louis on October 17-21, 2020.

Additionally, NCYL members are featured in a photo display that will be showcased at several prominent public locations in the Des Moines area this fall. After we receive your application and essay, you will receive complete information from Tim Vorland Photography about your NCYL professional photo session for this traveling display.  Tim Vorland Photography will provide the photo session package for a nominal fee.
