                      **NEW SCHEDULE

This conference concentrates on educating high school students in the subjects of Leadership, Patriotism, and our Free Enterprise System. The conference consists of lectures from current and past leaders. Students receive guidance from business professionals, guided tours of historical sites, and physical and mental leadership challenges. In addition to classroom and dorm interaction, students are challenged to develop investment plans which provide a greater understanding of financial management. Finally, these young leaders are offered a course on communication and an opportunity to offer a change to the US Constitution.  These and other exposures ensure students complete the course armed with the attitude for critical thinking and problem-solving skills. As future leaders of America,  they learn how to lead Americans.
