We're Empowering Young People to Excel as Leaders. Want to Help?

We have opportunities for both volunteering and sponsorship.

Seminar Planning Committee

Our team works year round to plan and execute our programs.  We have opportunities in fundraising, curriculum planning, volunteer development, and operations.  Join us today.

Seminar Volunteer

We have opportunities for everyone.  Our high school alumni return as Junior Staff, our college alumni are Program Assistants, and those over 21 are Faciliators, Section Leaders, Day Volunteers, and Key Staff.

Sponsor our Programs

Sponsor a student from your community.  Fund a CLeW.  Contribute towards our seminar activities.  Let's discuss the options together.

Gift in Kind Donation
Our seminar also accepts gift in kind donations.  These donations can include - but are not limited to - meals, supplies, and conference services.  For some suggested donations, explore our current wishlist.
