What do LT Alumni have to say about Leadership Today?

Leadership Today was a eye-opening experience which pushed me to explore my role as a leader with my community alongside my peers. My peers and I  explored diversity and individuality as we broke down barriers perceived within today's modern culture. This experience has allowed me to create deep bonds, increase my knowledge as a leader, and left me with confidence to be a catalyst for change within my communities.”

“Leadership Today was the most intense and memorable experience on my personal growth that I've had so far. I don't have another event in my life that compares. Before leaving for the retreat, I was a bit nervous, but I reassured myself that the others were there to learn and grow as well. It was very comforting to have a safe space to share my personal experiences and to ask questions. All of the staff, volunteer students, and fellow participants were incredibly welcoming, open, and understanding. I learned so much about other people, and in turn, learned so much about myself.”
