Join EFLI’s Discovering Leadership to discover your own leadership style while meeting leaders at the forefront of social change, engaging in hands-on skill-building workshops and discovering your most authentic voice. Engage with a group of people across the gender spectrum and deepen your understanding of your own identity through storytelling and the arts to better connect with the leadership style that is unique to you. Tap into your own creativity and confidence and learn powerful tools to make positive changes in your school, community and the world. By acknowledging the power we all have to affect change, Authentic leadership supports and empowers young people to find the leader within.

Discovering Leadership is a co-ed five and a half day program. If you’re interested in participating in a gender specific program, check out Activating Leadership for young women. If you are interested in an overnight experience, open to young people across the country, check out our EFLI NYC program.
