Lead for Diversity is a week-long leadership program for high school and college students. Lead For Diversity focuses on diversity in New Jersey and is presented by the American Conference on Diversity Youth Leadership Institute. Participating schools select a delegation of students that displays an interest in diversity and inter-group relations, motivation, and leadership abilities. The program includes interactive workshops, small group experiences, and experiential learning. Participants gain the needed skills to be successful with conflict resolution.

The goal of youth leadership conferences it to provide young people with skills needed to be leaders in their schools and local communities. Programs are available across the country and several programs exist for “at-risk” young teenagers. If you represent a conference and would like to hire a youth speaker, please contact us.
