Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership program for today's young high school leaders. This life-changing event focuses on service leadership as the first, most meaningful leadership-development experience. A Key Leader will learn the most important lesson of leadership— it comes from helping others succeed.

Participants begin by attending a Key Leader conference, which is a weekend retreat. Large and small group workshops, discussions and team-building activities take place over the course of the weekend. Students have opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help them to change their schools, communities, and world for the better.

While exploring leadership in a whole new way, participants will make amazing new friends and have experiences they will never forget. Positive, ongoing interaction with other Key Leader graduates offers continuing reinforcement, encouragement and growth of leadership skills.

Since April 2005 Key Leader has served more than 26,000 students at 553 Key Leader events in 40 U.S. states,  and seven Canadian provinces, Malaysia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, El Salvador and Singapore.wth of leadership skills.
