National Student Leadership Conference....?

Hi! I received this a few months ago and i also just got another packet yesterday. I've been sent emails before and I looked on the website. This isn't a scam, first off. Here is the website: www.youtube.com/watch?v=gI7mPruxeJE basically it is a group of a lot of students from around the country who get together and do hands-on things and gain a lot of experience. It is for 10-11 days (depending on the program you choose) in the summer and it is sorta like a camp.

it looks extremely good on your college application. Unfortunately it is very expensive. around $2,500 depending on which program you choose. Here are the programs:

I think you pick the closest college and drive or fly there. It's nice because I live in the DC area and I want to do Education & the Classroom, so it works out. I might not do it because it is really expensive! You can apply for a scholarship, but it is only for those who need it (low income family, can't afford it at all), which isn't me so i can't unfortunately.

I watched the video on the website and it looks interesting and people say they have fun and get a lot of experience.

what is a youth challenge program?

what is a youth challenge program?

The Youth Challenge Program is a program run by the National Guard of the United States whose stated mission is "to intervene in and reclaim the lives of at-risk youth to produce program graduates with the values, skills, education and self-discipline necessary to succeed as adults." The program accepts 16-18 year old male and female high school dropouts who are drug-free and not in trouble with the law. The program lasts for 17½ months. The first 5½ months are part of the quasi-military Residential Phase. The last 12 months are part of the Post-Residential Phase. Most participants will earn their GED by the end of the Residential Phase.
