Nonprofit Leadership Institute Application Process

Applicants to the NLI are generally between the ages of 14 and 25. The NLI is open to full-time Greene County college students with a preference to Antioch College students, Yellow Springs residents attending college anywhere, YS / Miami Township juniors and seniors, and Yellow Springs student-residents in a “gap” year. Others with an interest in nonprofits, not meeting these criteria, may be considered to audit the NLI on a case-by-case basis.


  • NLI participants must complete an application and an individual interview.
  • Participants must commit to the full NLI, work collaboratively and complete all of the activities, and arrive on time and prepared for each work day.
  • Workshop sessions and panel discussions will take place virtually or at the YSCF Training location and include educational components and activities.
  • Work sessions will include site visits and work at local nonprofits. All locations will be in the Yellow Springs area and may be walkable depending on conditions and preferences.
