This year, outstanding students from across the nation took part in a unique leadership development program in 35 cities across the country.

Themed "Courageous Leadership," the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC) helps young scholars take an introspective and highly personalized assessment of their leadership skills and abilities.

Throughout the four-day program, scholars built a working "toolkit" of strategies to help them successfully dream, create and implement plans that would change how they view their role as leaders in their communities.

The event took place Feb. 10-13, in Indianapolis.

Northview High School freshman Daniel Love took part in the event.

He received a Certificate of Merit for doing so.

"The step each person takes in discovering his or her own leadership strengths can be a very personal process," Congressional Youth Leadership Council (CYLC) Dean of Academic Affairs Marguerite Regan said.

CYLC sponsored the event.

"The National Young Leaders State Conference will help students get at the heart of their innate talents and skills and will also help them identify how best they can serve within their communities," Regan added.

The NYLSC curriculum focuses on an introspective and highly personalized assessment of each student's leadership skills and abilities. The scholars will be challenged to step forward in a manner that is decisive and confident, to grasp the concepts of leadership that will be taught and to act upon their dreams of making a difference in the world while maintaining the courage of their convictions.

The Congressional Youth Leadership Council is a nonpartisan educational organization. Founded in 1985, CYLC is committed to fostering and inspiring young people to achieve their full leadership potential.

To date, members of the United States Congress have joined the commitment by serving on the CYLC Honorary Congressional Board of Advisors.

In addition, more than 50 embassies participate in the CYLC's Honorary Board of Embassies.
