The LIA Youth Leadership Boot Camp provides hands-on leadership training for LIA youth and college students who are elected to LIA leadership positions in secondary schools and our college chapters. It is a four-day, three night camp intended to fortify youth with the tools, skills, and self-efficacy to succeed academically, as well as becoming visible leaders in their communities. College chapter students serve as mentors and counselors for the students, guiding them through their learning experience.
It’s an unparalleled, formative experience for these youth that prepares them to lead during the school year. Students stay on a local university’s campus, participate in workshops, collaborate with school teams to set goals and plan their year, compete in team-building activities, and enjoy an etiquette dinner, dance, and outdoor recreational activities.
