Over the course of its 20-year history, the Institute for Youth, Education & Families (YEF Institute) at the National League of Cities has transformed how municipal leaders envision their roles in improving outcomes for all children, youth, and families in their communities. For residents to thrive, we need empowered local leaders who place the well-being of children, youth, and their families at the center focus of governance. The YEF Institute, current and former local officials and partners at the heart of this important work gathered for a kick-off of our 20-year celebration, reflection and re-commitment to our communities.
