COVID-19 Notice:

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our 2021 conference (originally planned for January of 2021) is cancelled. We will not hold an in-person or virtual conference in 2021. We will plan to resume conference programming in 2022. 

Who We are

We are Triangle Youth Leadership Services, a student organization at NC State University dedicated to the leadership development and empowerment of North Carolina high schoolers.

Our mission? To give every NC high schooler the tools they need to lead for good in their communities.

Learn more about us on our About Us page. 

What we do

We organize the Triangle Youth Leadership Conference, an annual conference that brings high school students from across the state to NCSU's campus for two days of intensive leadership development. The conference includes hands-on workshops to hone leadership skills, a small group project, and opportunities to learn from an inspiring keynote speaker and explore NC State's campus. TYLC participants will leave the conference empowered, and with the tangible skills necessary to serve as leaders in their communities.
