Student Leadership Conference 2020

slc 18

The conference theme for this year will be selected soon. Plenary speakers at SLC provide teaching in the main sessions followed by student discussion groups, 3 workshop sessions that focus on leadership application and plenty of time for interaction and fun in a beautiful and comfortable setting. This is a unique opportunity for secondary students to grow in their faith and in their leadership skills, and to fellowship and worship together with like-minded young people from many nations. 

The conference location for 2020 will be at a Christian ministry center in Vajta, Hungary. ACSI provides 2 conferences dates to match your school's availability and preference. We will do our best to ensure a good balance between Eastern and Western European schools as well as between national and international type schools. NOTE that space may not be available for your group on your preferred dates because of high demand, so REGISTER EARLY!

SLC now runs the same program in 2 consecutive weeks. NOTE that the dates have changed!

Week 1: September 23 - 26
Week 2: September 30 - October 3
 

The conference begins with check-in on Wednesday, from 2:00-5:00 pm. Dinner begins at 5:00 pm followed by the evening program and activities. The conference will end with the evening session on Friday. Register and pay by June 15 to receive the early registration discount. Registration closes on September 1.

Program for 2 age groups:
We have an SLC program which ensures that the experience for each grade level is appropriate and of the best quality. Students from age 13-15 are provided with their own workshops and discussion groups designed specifically for their needs, introducing them to the foundations of biblical leadership and the character qualities on which to build. Students from age 16 and up have discussion groups and workshops specifically for their age group as well.

We also provide training for older students who want to work and lead activities and discussions with the younger students. High school students who want to serve as discussion group leaders for either age group must participate in a short online training course beginning August 24, 2020.

Student Selection:
It is very important to begin your student selection well in advance. Please consider now how this will be done so that it most benefits your students and your school as a whole. 

The graduated pricing serves to encourage schools to think about selecting students early so that they will be better prepared for this event.  We have many ideas for helping you prepare your students for SLC, many of which are available in the document "SLC Description & Guide". We want each student to get the most out of this event, which can only happen with your excellent support, teaching and prayer. NOTE: We require contact information for student discussion leaders because they must participate in a short online training course BEFORE the conference (more information available in the Preparation Guide).

Mind Shift

In a time of precipitous and unprecedented change, educators are being called upon to do more than perhaps ever before. Drawing upon our conversations with hundreds of Christian school teachers and leaders, we tried to name many of the fears accompanying this change for Christian educators.

Using Questions

Using questions in our classrooms can lead to significant improvement in student learning and retention and also help students develop a biblical lens for learning and life.
