Grow as a leader, and improve your community this summer. Through the Summer Leadership & Service Summit (LSS) students between their junior and senior years of high school attend a week-long institute to study and practice leadership skills and service as a form of community and civic engagement. In a week of learning on campus, students work under the direction of faculty and staff from Wartburg College’s Institute for Leadership Education. Students will continue to engage with these individuals throughout the next academic year as they implement their projects.

Questions about the Summer Leadership & Service Summit should be directed to 319-352-8486 or email theresa.moore@wartburg.edu.
