Leadership in Practice

Engage, Inspire, Lead!


The best way to develop leadership skills is to practice, practice, practice. For four days each June, that’s exactly what Missouri’s brightest freshmen and sophomore student leaders do in Leadership in Practice.

Leadership in Practice is designed to provide young people with the opportunity to learn characteristics of excellent leadership, entrepreneurship and life skills so they can apply those skills in their own lives when they return to their schools and communities. Read an overview of our 2018 program.
