Typically longer than a con (conference), leadership schools give participants a change to dig deeper into leadership development topics, among others. Several different types of leadership schools happen across the country. Some are youth only, while others are combined. Some are small with twenty participants, while others have many more.

Also take a look at the variety of leadership schools offered that youth may attend as part of a multigenerational team.
