Since its launch in January 2007, the Manhattan Institute's Young Leaders Circle (YLC) program has
provided a unique forum for young professionals in the New York metropolitan area who are interested in free-market ideas and public policy. By joining the YLC,
you will have an opportunity to hear from leading thinkers on current pressing issues in an evening lecture and
cocktail party forum. Young Leaders
also join a valuable network of over 100 outstanding like-minded peers in finance, law, and other professional fields.
The YLC program hosts a variety of policy speakers. Past speakers include Steve Forbes, William Kristol, Charles Murray, Attorney General Edwin Meese,
Ambassador John Bolton and General Jack Keane, as well as some of the Manhattan Institute's very own senior fellows: Heather Mac Donald, Peter Huber, and Nicole Gelinas. Speakers have
focused on a wide range of policy issues, from energy policy and the economy to culture and health care. The stimulating lectures and engaging conversations offered at the ten exclusive Young Leaders Circle cocktail parties each year are
unparalleled for New York's policy-minded young professionals.
Young Leaders Circle members will receive invitations to ten exclusive cocktail partieswhich provide an ideal opportunity for members to interact with top policy minds and to network with like-minded
young professionals. A year-long membership is $250.
Under-40 donors who give at the $1,000 level are invited to join the Young Leaders Advisory Committee, whose input and assistance will be sought on speaker ideas and outreach to new members. In addition
to the monthly Young Leaders Circle events, the Advisory Committee will be invited to two private events with Manhattan Institute trustees and fellows. They will also receive invitations to select Institute luncheons and conferences,
receiving all of the benefits pursuant to MI membership at the Benefactor's Circle level.
Guests of members and individuals who want to attend one event may do so for $45, which will be put toward membership (should they decide to join.) Advisory committee members are allowed to bring one guest
for free to each event.
If you are interested in learning more about the Young Leaders Circle or have questions about membership, please contact Jaclyn Kiely,
Deputy Director of Development.
