The Most Flexible, Affordable, Accessible,
Well-Designed, Student-Centered,
Digital Workshop in the World

In 2021, we’re offering our summer camp online again using our custom platform building on the lessons from a successful Summer 2020!

*UPDATE: 2 Weeks of In-person camp in NYC August 2nd-13th!*

Leaders 4SC is a summer workshop for middle school (rising 5th to 10th grade) students on leadership, communication, decision-making, and advocacy. Our goal is to train the next generation of civic leaders: members of a community who actively participate in society.

By the end of each week, students will have:

  1. Completed at least one writing or speaking assignment arguing for and defending their opinion on any current issue
  2. Participated in daily discussions and activities on a different major current event every day
  3. Participated in daily task force activities to role play as key decision makers and stakeholders
  4. Discussed, debated, and bonded with an incredible group of engaged young people!

We use a custom platform that allows students to watch live and recorded lectures, complete group activities and online games/puzzles, and submit all assignments from a tablet/computer from home.

The workshop will require students to have access to a laptop/computer/tablet during the workshop times or they can watch any of our recorded lectures and do the activities from anywhere.
