The D4LC: Explore Conference is in its 6th year and is the foundational component to our leadership training program. Designed for youth and young adults, grades 6th through 12th, D4LC: Explore Conference consists of two days of leadership education, practice, and reflection in the areas of Community, Service, Relationships, Interpersonal Development, Gratitude, and more. We include an emphasis on professional etiquette, physical activity, and healthy lifestyles as well. We do this all while have a whole lot of fun, laughing, meeting new friends and creating lifelong memories!
D4LC: Explore Conference check-in will begin at 9 a.m. with the conference kicking off at 10:15 a.m. on Day 1. The conference will conclude at 4:00 p.m. on Day 2.
When designing this conference, we really took the time to think about where the important conversations happen and for most it is the car, the kitchen table and the living room. We designed the setup to embody the kitchen and the living room. We also took to heart the things we wished we had learned or saw folks teaching now. Instead of saying “this is what a leader looks like”, we ask, “Who are you? What makes you, you? How can you lead as you are?” It’s simple, but in so many ways, it’s a game changer.
