Are NYLF programs a scam?

No. The company has a 30+ year history of providing experiential learning programs. The programs are designed by education experts, conducted in collaboration with top universities, and accredited by national organizations and have helped more than 800,000 students gain hands-on experience and pursue their passions.

What about that New York Times article?

The New York Times article you may have seen is nearly ten years old. Since then, the company has changed ownership and management, and has successfully conducted hundreds of summer sessions, as well as two inauguration summits. I encourage you to read a more recent article on Envision from The Washington Post, which speaks to the company’s efforts to help students discover their passions and impact the world.

Why do NYLF programs have tuition?

As Envision does not receive charitable donations, the only way to construct, plan, and support the programs is through tuition. The company does, however, understand that the cost of education can be a challenge so there are a number of ways that students and their families can help defray the cost of attending one of our programs, including scholarships and payment plans. The company encourages reaching out to the office of admissions to learn more about these opportunities.

What schools have NYLF (and Envision) partnered with?

Envision has partnered with numerous top universities to both construct and conduct its programs, including Stanford University for its Advanced Emergency Medicine and Intensive Law & Trial programs, Rice University for the Rice University Aerospace & Aviation Academy, and George Mason University for its Game & Technology Academy.

To help design curriculum for their programs, the company has also partnered with professors at various universities, including Stanford University School of Medicine, Harvey Mudd College, Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health, and Villanova University.
