Conferences

High School Leadership Conference

Taking place this year on a Saturday in November (date TBA)

At The High School Leadership Conference, youth are inspired, motivated, and educated to become community leaders. Youth spend the entire day participating in team building activities in large and small groups and hear from motivational speakers on topics such as motivation, diversity, perseverance, and respect. Conference participants meet fellow students from other high schools as well as positive adult role models who all share a passion for positive change.

After the conference, youth have the opportunity to¬†put their new leadership skills to practice through The LeaderShop’s High School Leadership Program. Throughout the year, students serve committees as chairpersons, vice-chairpersons, secretaries, and treasurers to plan and implement events to benefit the community.

The High School Leadership Conference has brought together 100+ youth from Lyons Township, Nazareth Academy, Argo Community, and Riverside-Brookfield High Schools for this day-long event.
