An advanced skills-building boot camp

National Leadership Academy

2021 will be Virtual

Because of the uncertainty about holding large gatherings, the 2021 NLA will be held as a virtual conference using the Zoom platform. Planning is well underway so check back as we post updates.

2021 NLA VOLUNTEER POSITIONS – NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

In our current COVID-19 world, NLA will be virtual so we won’t need as many positions as we would for an in-person event, but we still need your help. We’re looking for Leads for all positions, and some Leads can choose to have Teams to support them. 

Time Commitment: Plan for a weekly Team meeting (1-2 hours, Leads required) and up to 3 hours per week for your volunteer assignment.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2021 National Leadership Academy! 

APPLICATIONS DUE SUN SEP 20  Application link https://forms.gle/eKLihvQaU2UJyxwe8
