The Leadership Corps is a two-day conference that will bring students from all over Florida together for a time of inspiration and hands-on training in community mobilization. Students will also have opportunity to interact with leaders from various sectors: Federal and state government, non-profit organizations and local businesses.  Additionally, students will participate in brainstorming sessions with peers that we hope results in their empowerment; empowerment for youth to affect change at a statewide level. 

The event is being held at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.  Students will stay on Campus in the Libra Community (Sumpter, Flagler and Seminole Halls) with supervision provided by adults from our partners and sponsors.  College aged students may have an opportunity to earn additional volunteer hours as a mentor, chaperone and / or a facilitator.  For additional information and an application visit http://www.lawtonchiles.org/LCLC.html.
