What we do


Throughout  the  week,  delegates  participate  in  a  variety  of  sessions  and  activities  that  push  them  to  discover  and  put  to  use  their leadership  talents  and  abilities  while  recognizing  the  barriers  and challenges  that  others  encounter.

Who we look for


Who we look for


Students

Entering grades 10-12

The content and structure of our conference is tailored each year to meet, discuss, and address the needs and challenges that young adults face. As a result, we limit our delegates to this age group.

Changers

Invested in their communities

In a delegate, we look for individuals that are a part of their communities. Whether you are a member of a club, a team, a student organization, or are simply an engaged citizen, you are in a unique position to affect change in your world.

Leaders

Who will change the world

At our conference, we consider everyone to have the ability to be a leader. Whether or not you see it in yourself, we will help you identify and use skills to allow you to become a more effective leader in your community.
