Youth can be the leaders of tomorrow

Council for Youth is a leading national and youth policy organization with a robust individual and corporate membership. Individual members include many of the most prominent leaders in international affairs who come together to engage in nonpartisan conversation on the most salient policy and governance issues of the day. The corporate membership program provides a unique forum for business leaders to interact with CFY members and other global influencers, noted thinkers, and experienced practitioners.
