Days Until Central Leaders School 2018








Join us in 2018!

Pro Tips for a great week!

Be Yourself
You get what you put in. Want to have a fun, memorable week? Try new things. Meet new people.
Participate. Be yourself.
At Leaders School, you get what you put into it. If you show up prepared to give it your all and participate in the activities, you will have a great time. The week is designed to be fun, after all!
Have fun
While you will be learning new things and might experience situations that challenge your comfort zone, remember that you are there to have fun. Roll with it and enjoy yourself!
Try Something New
While you may be tempted to take classes that you are already familiar with, the best way to make the most out of the week is to try something new. Where else can you play basketball in one moment and the next be tie dying your own shirt, except at Leaders School?
Respect Others
Teens from all different backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures attend Leaders School. You will meet people who may be different than you, and that is great! Show them respect and they will respect you too.
