Experience a future career and life on a college campus
The NSLC uses an interactive approach to learning that enables students to experience a day-in-the-life of a future career. Our youth leadership programs are interactive, dynamic and exciting. They are facilitated by our staff, but directed by our students.
While at the NSLC, students will meet with and learn from national and world leaders, surgeons and scientists, actors and playwrights, business leaders, lawyers and more. Exclusive tours and behind-the-scenes visits add richness to the experience.
Develop your leadership potential
At the heart of the NSLC is a comprehensive leadership program designed to develop the leadership potential within each of our students. Students participate in a series of interactive workshops led by nationally renowned facilitators. Students practice the skills of effective leadership throughout the program as they work with their teams, returning home with the skills essential for success in high school, college and beyond.
Tackle college-level course work
At the National Student Leadership Conference, students enjoy college-level lectures taught by university professors, doctors, practicing attorneys, professional artists and more. Our curriculum provides students with a foundation of knowledge that will prepare them for success in college and in their future career.
