Here's what last year's attendees said about their experience at the Student Leadership Conference:

"It was very encouraging, inspiring, and most importantly a reminder of why it is so important to be a leader. All the hard work is worth it when you can reach out to so many people and make such a difference."

"I learned great leadership skills and got to network with other leaders!"
