About The Foundation

ylc logo finished 2The Youth Leadership Foundation, Inc. (YLF) was established in 1985 to support the Patriotic Education activities of the Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) and other civic and educational organizations. The YLF is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) not-for-profit Florida corporation dedicated to providing unique educational opportunities for our nation’s youth. Since 1985, thousands of high school students have attended these Youth Leadership Conferences (YLC’s) which are listed by the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) in their annual pamphlet of approved activities. These conferences give participants the opportunity to participate in dynamic discussions of patriotism, history, free-enterprise, and leadership exercises with their peers in addition to exchanges with top officials from government, industry, and the academic community.
