Update from NDLS on COVID-19

Our Board of Directors has been closely monitoring the daily changes that surround COVID-19 in North Dakota and nationally. With the health and safety of the student leaders and volunteer staff as our main priority, our Board of Directors has decided to cancel NDLS 2020.

We truly enjoy providing this life-changing experience for student leaders every year and are very disappointed Seminar will not take place for the first time since 1981. However, in the midst of these unprecedented times, we are optimistic about the future of our organization and look forward to teaching leadership and community service skills to students in 2021. Please see our FAQ page for more details.

What started out as a small project has turned into an exciting annual leadership seminar. Each spring, more than 100 of the state's top student leaders gather for a three day program.
