What is LEAD?

LEAD is a life-transforming week featuring authentic leadership simulations in the legislative, media, judicial, campaign, and business fields under the direction of Christian professionals. During this real-world experience, high school students learn valuable life skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, strategic planning, and effective communication. While engaged in high-level leadership roles, they are also inspired to apply Biblical and moral principles in their own life and the world around them.

Who can attend?

LEAD is open to all teens entering 9th grade through those who have just completed 12th grade. First and second-year students participate in our exciting hands-on House and Senate legislative tracks, and students returning for a third year can choose from our Business, Mock Trial, Moot Court, Campaign, and Media tracks. Find out what track you are eligible for here. Students from all over the United States have attended LEAD, as well as teens from Canada, Mexico, England, and Israel.
