Adjusting the Sails: Correcting Our Course in Student Development, Charting a New Course in the Classroom

Students are different today. Are you adjusting to how they learn?

For years, we have debated on just how broken our current education system is in America. What we all agree on is—we need to do some things differently.

Our 2014 National Leadership Forum will provide the latest ideas on the changes schools, colleges, organizations and youth groups must make to stay relevant. We are planning an incredible line-up of speakers, panels, videos, interviews and activities to update you and enable you to "adjust your sails" and "chart your course" in student development. 

National Leadership Forum 2014 will help you:

  • Transform languishing students into motivated leaders of themselves and others.
  • Spark new levels of creativity in the classroom to engage today’s "touch-screen" students.
  • Rekindle ambition and passion within your students to pursue their full potential.
  • Build students who make wise decisions that keep them in school and out of trouble.

This event will be geared toward anyone who works with the next generation.  We will specifically present information that is most relevant to those working with High School and College aged Students, however everyone is welcome to attend.  Bring a team from your school or department and soak in every moment.

"Great forum that anyone can gain knowledge form and start putting what you learned into practice. Wonderful line up of speakers who are leaders in their fields, very inspiring!"
