Welcome to the African American Youth Leadership Conference (AAYLC),  I am Paul Prosper the Executive Director.


This organization has grown significantly since January 1993 and I am honored to take our program to new heights. My goal is to make the AAYLC Colorado’s premier youth conference. Our mission is to educate, empower, and enlighten youth to become critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and to embrace the traditions, histories, and cultures of their communities. Our team of motivated and talented volunteers is passionate about the future success of Colorado’s Youth. I invite you to partner with us in supporting our mission as a student, parent, volunteer, presenter, sponsor or donor. 

We would like to thank Colorado College for their financial support and for providing a first-class venue year-after-year to host the conference. An additional thank you also goes to all past and current AAYLC sponsors and donors. We could not do what we do without your contributions.

We are currently planning our annual conference which we promise to deliver a dynamic set of presentations and workshops for students and parents. We are carefully ensuring that all AAYLC workshops stimulate learning in the following areas:  Leadership, Fine Arts, College Prep, Entrepreneurship/Trade School, Black History, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math), Financial Management, and much more.  These topics help us to confirm our slogan “Youth Building Respect and Responsibility for Future Success.”

Thank you for your interest in the African American Youth Leadership Conference.  Looking forward to a partnership with you.

Paul Prosper, Executive Director
