STLF Leadership Conference - Spring 2016

The STLF Leadership Conference is a leadership event to be held in April of 2016 that will bring together high school students from the Twin Cities and surrounding areas, STLF participants and alumni, and young professionals interested in developing their personal leadership. 

STLF believes that everyone has the capacity to be a leader in their community. Leadership is not a title, it is an action. As an organization, we ask our participants to find their passion and take the leadership skills they have gained with us and bring that to the issues and communities they care about to make a positive impact. Fill out our sponsorship form to get started.

STLF has defined this conference with three distinct purposes:  Leadership Development, Connection, and Inspiration to Act.

  • Professional development is approached by STLF as individual Leadership Development. Each individual must first understand oneself prior to understanding how they can employ leadership in their communities. This comes from adding value to conference attendees through sessions, speakers, and service with a purpose.
  • It is all about connections. STLF believes in leadership through relationships. Connection comes from combining different perspectives and levels of experience we create the support system needed to get ideas from innovation and put them into action.
  • Inspiration to Act comes from a combination of learning, idea sharing, and looking at possibilities all with the goal of taking action. STLF’s founding is predicated on the knowledge that great ideas and change-making discussions occur on a daily basis, but only when we purposefully and specifically take action does change happen. STLF Leadership Conference will provide inspiration coupled with pathways to take action.

Sponsor STLF programming for a year:

Sponsor STLF for the 2015-2016 fiscal year and help us create new positions, programs, and opportunities for young people to reveal their leadership. STLF has a network of thousands of alumni and current participants who are forward thinking, socially conscious, and engaged individuals. At the “Yeah Buddy” level, you have the opportunity to make over 100,000 community touchpoints through event appearances, social media, and more! Fill out our sponsorship form to get started.


Sponsor an individual student or STLF Pay It Forward tour or for college, high school, or middle school students:

Sponsoring individual students or an entire trip is the most direct way to affect the leadership development of students in our programs.
