Our Summer Leadership Workshop is a five-day, four-night leadership immersion experience for students entering grades 6-12. All day, every day, you’ll discover new ways to become a leader and make a positive impact in your school and community. More importantly, you’ll discover a better you.

Our biggest event is broken into three age-specific Workshops spread out over two dates. Explore the one that’s right for you.​

2019 Workshop Dates:

June 25-29 and July 16-20, 2019

Registration will open February 24 at 1:00pm CST.

This year we will be offering two Workshops, with all three of our programs (JAM, SLW, and ALW) at both Workshops. All activities are held at Wayne State College in Wayne, Nebraska. Our friends at Wayne State give us the run of campus for a week, and we take over. You’ll primarily stay with your specific program (JAM, SLW, or ALW), but you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see your friends in the other programs, too. 

We're a volunteer powered, nonprofit organization. We’re proud to keep our prices low enough to merely cover the hard costs of Workshop, making us one of the most affordable summer experiences in the region—and in our humble opinion, the best value.  Even if you don’t know anyone attending Workshop, you will (in about five minutes). We’ll make sure of it!
