Thank you for your interest in the National Teen Leadership Program!
NTLP is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization that celebrated our 20th year anniversary in 2012. Since 1992, we have hosted nearly 10,000 students in at camps held in five states.
In 2013, we will be at Loyola Marymount (Southern California), July 26-28, and CSU Sacramento (Northern California Cal), August 2-4 . The weekend is jam-packed with motivational speakers, quality workshops and numerous small group discussions designed to inspire, instruct and promote teamwork, diversity, communication skills and generally instill important leadership concepts.
Instructional components may include:
- Leadership Concepts – Ethics, roles of leaders
and followers, group facilitation
- Bias Awareness, Diversity issues and Stereotyping
- Goal Setting and Setting Priorities
- Communication and Interviewing skills
- Problem Solving and Conflict Resolution
NTLP hires ONLY the best, most professional youth motivators on the circuit today. Their topics range from thought-provoking messages about hate speech, bullying and prejudice to how to overcome obstacles, how to deal with peer pressure and how to accept themselves and be the best they can be. Everyone responds differently to a speaker’s style, content, humor and presentation. With three different speakers to learn from, every student is touched in a unique way.
Program fees are just $449 and group discounts, starting with 4 students are just $399. The fees include: University Accommodations (3 days and 2 nights) all meals, staffing, three motivational speakers, program materials, tee shirt and everything necessary for a quality experience. Advisers staying on site pay $225, which includes room and meals. If you wish to stay in a nearby hotel, there is no charge to come on site and sit in where appropriate.
NTLP seeks students who are leaders in academics, sports, student government, community service, drama, music, or any other school or community activity. Please also consider students who exhibit leadership potential, the ones that need special encouragement because they have not yet discovered their own special leadership abilities. ALL interested students are accepted. Students may be in grades 9th – 12th, including 8th graders who will enter 9th grade in fall 2013, and seniors graduating in summer 2013.
NTLP is an exceptional opportunity for any high school student and we hope you will consider sending all of your students this summer!
