Student Leadership Conference 2021

Recent world events have shown us just how important community is, but also how fragile it can be. How can we lead in a way that strengthens the communities in which we live? Whether we are thinking about our local, national or global community, we want to be leaders who both work with others and take individual responsibility. At SLC we will be exploring the role of Biblical faith, hope and love in building authentic community, and the courage that will be needed for us to lead in this way.

We are committed to providing a quality, in-person event this year for your student leadership team! There is significant reason to hope that travel will be possible and so ACSI has reserved space at the beautiful Zichy-Vajta Conference Center in Hungary for a group of 220 people. Be sure to register now while space is available as there will be only 1 event from September 22-25.

Your registration (or confirmation of your interest) must be received by May 31.

You will not be asked to pay for participation until we confirm how you will participate in SLC as a virtual participation may also be possible. Registration requirements are minimal, but you will need to provide a contact name and a potential number of participants with the option to edit this later. Our desire is to serve your school through student leadership training. It will be important to work with your student team now to prepare for whatever type of participation is possible for your school.

SLC begins Wednesday afternoon and ends with breakfast on Saturday, giving students the opportunity to process and discuss the information in a relaxed setting where they can interact with Christian students from many backgrounds and cultures.

SLC 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. SLC includes several main sessions, workshops, student discussion groups and time for fellowship and interaction between students and adults in a beautiful and relaxed setting.

     September 22-25, 2021 (ages 13-18)

You must have an active ACSI school membership or a special invitation to register.

Program for 13-18 year old students:
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 in early September.

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. 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.

Pricing and Registration:
- Register as soon as possible! We must be able to plan the event based on your availability.
- Registration prices are per person and will be posted here soon.
- Schools must register their group and provide details about each participant. 
- Schools must provide 1 designated chaperone for every 10 student participants.
