About SYLP

Created in 2017 by Rob Siegfried of The Siegfried Group, LLP, Siegfried Youth Leadership Program® (SYLP) is a unique leadership development program designed specifically for students in grades 8 through 12, as well as their teachers and mentors.

The mission of SYLP is to help young people build individual leadership, which enables them to enrich their personal and professional lives. The program focuses on participants’ individual leadership development, enhancing their lives, and inspiring healthy change within their communities.

In support of this mission, SYLP hosts compelling events throughout the school year. During these events, which have occurred in-person, virtually, and as a unique hybrid of the two, participants:
Learn how to focus on their goals and begin to define a clear path forward

  • Hear from people with different perspectives to expand their understanding
  • Discover innovative tools and concepts to help plan and realize goals
  • Boost their confidence when it comes to themselves, their abilities, and their potential
  • Gain a better understanding of individual leadership and how to build character ethic
  • Visualize their bigger future by leveraging their strengths
  • Meet new people in an exciting environment
