This summer, join student leaders from across Minnesota to learn the foundations of great student leadership. We will dive into the five practices of exemplary leadership that based on over 30 years of research have examined the stories, behaviors and actions of what makes a great leader.

Learning effective leadership is key to getting anything done in the collaborative world that we live in. Whether you are looking to be a nurse, a welder, a nonprofit or business leader, taking people and organizations to places they have never been before is a skill that will always be valuable. 

Note: Participation in all four workshops is encouraged but not required.
