The National Institute of Labor Education (1957-1971) was dedicated to encouraging the development of labor education programs within non-labor institutions.

The National Institute of Labor Education (NILE) was established in 1957, as the successor organization to the Inter-University Labor Education Committee. The goals of NILE were to foster experimentation in workers' education and to extend the scope of labor educational programs conducted by non-labor agencies such as universities, libraries and other voluntary organizations. Initially established under grants from the Ford Foundation Fund for Adult Education and the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations, NILE operated programs in workers' education from 1957 to 1971.

The National Institute of Labor Education (NILE) Youth Employment Program (YEP) sought to mobilize labor resources toward the establishment of pre-apprenticeship institutional training and on-the-job training programs for unemployed youth. YEP projects were administered by NILE under a grant from the U.S. Office of Manpower, Automation, and Training. Jointly conducted by unions and companies in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Washington State, and Wisconsin, the projects provided training and apprenticeships for plumbers, pipefitters, carpenters, bricklayers, masons, tool and die makers, maintenance mechanics, meatcutters, painters, truck mechanics, millmen, machinists, electrical workers, and bakery and confectionery workers.
