Based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat and guidance from state health officials and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Norwich University has canceled its Youth Leadership Conference, which had been scheduled for March 27-29.

For High School Students: Free to participants!

Youth Leadership Conference® (YLC) is a nationally recognized, Military Order of the World Wars-sponsored program for high school students seeking to improve leadership skills and learn about the U.S. government and civic responsibility. The conference, which takes place on selected weekends during the winter months, encompasses hands-on participation in activities based on the U.S. Constitution, personal finance, the free enterprise system, the U.S. Supreme Court, effective communications, and leadership.

Virtual FLC

To protect the well-being of our community and visitors, we will be changing the format of our summer camps. Summer camps will not be held on campus this year. In the spirit of continuing to offer high school students valuable leadership and skill-based experiences, we will host a series of live and recorded events over the summer — AT NO COST.

All students who have registered and already paid for a Future Leaders, Drill or the Esports camp will receive a full refund.

Registration: July 19 - July 31, 2020

FLC is a two-week, military-style, summertime adventure experience that builds understanding of small-group leadership techniques, leadership ethics, teamwork, problem-solving, and communication.
