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.
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.
February 28 – March 1, 2020
LCW is an intense, weekend program for high school students seeking to gain insight on teamwork, leadership, and effective communications. Students build water-survival skills, and challenge themselves on the climbing wall, the Army Physical Fitness Test, and the rappel tower (weather permitting). Get a crash course on how to apply for college, the federal service academies, ROTC scholarships, and financial aid.
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.
