About

Triangle Youth Leadership

Triangle Youth Leadership Services (TYLS) is a non-profit student organization founded nine years ago by a group of Park Scholars with a vision. They saw that high school students had the potential to be incredible leaders, but no one was teaching them the skills or pushing them forward. They established the Triangle Youth Leadership Conference (TYLC) to initiate positive community change through empowering youth to actively engage in local leadership, in turn sparking a chain-reaction that inspires them to continue this change at the local, state, and national level.
