Wishbone, a non-profit fundraising platform that helps students attend after school and summer programs through charitable donations, has helped send this student to our leadership camp. We’re pleased that the Wishbone community has given us their support and generosity.

Wishbone.org helped send Fatima to our program this year!

“Thanks to all of my donors I was able to attend National Teen Leadership Program. Attending this program has [given] me more leadership skills and has helped me come out of my comfort
zone. At first I was shy, but after a few hours and a nice welcoming gathering, I felt safe and like at home. Everyone was very kind and loving with me and other people. Thank you for making this opportunity possible.”

We are so glad that Fatima was able to attend this year! Find out more about her Wishbone campaign. #wishbone #NTLP2016 #NTLPNorCal

Barbara lives in San Jose and attended our Northern California program this summer, with help from Wishbone.org!

Here is her update: “[NTLP] has completely changed my outlook on my life and the people around me. I have learned so much about how to develop myself as a leader and a warrior. I feel like I can make an impact on a person’s life, even if it is tiny. This program had so many different elements; it was an emotional journey. For example, you can be happy and excited in one moment then the next moment, you can be silent and contemplating life. The people were the most amazing part of my experience, they were all so accepting and happy… I am truly grateful for the people who helped contribute to this wonderful summer!”

Melanie attended our Northern California program this summer, with help from Wishbone.org! Here is her update:

“I went to my program and it was great. I saw some friends that I haven’t seen in a while that came from a school back home and I also made some new friends. The speakers that were there were great and the workshops they had showed us some new leadership skills. The camp left a happy feeling in me and I would definitely go again since I loved it.”

In honor of our Founder, Laura Segura, and her 22 years of dedication to the National Teen Leadership Program, our organization established the Laura Segura Scholarship Fund in 2014 to send students in need of financial assistance to our three-day program and to award $2,500 college scholarships for completing our NTLPCorps Fellows Program.

What is the NTLPCorps Fellows Program?

The NTLPCorps Fellows Program is a transformative year-long program that integrates the leadership skills students obtain at camp and utilize those skills to create a service project that impacts their community directly.

Who are NTLPCorps Fellows?

NTLPCorps Fellows are future community leaders and agents of change. They embrace and execute NTLP’s core values, make a year-long commitment to represent NTLP and work with mentors and other Fellows to identify problems or needs to improve their community.

This year, NTLP will identify two students who will serve as our NTLPCorps Fellows for 2016. At the completion of their fellowship, he/she will receive a $2,500 scholarship to the college of their choice. Scholarships will be based on the extent of the project proposed and awarded upon the project’s completion.

Apply for our NTLPCorps Fellows Program today!

Thank You for NTLP

This summer was hugely impacted by NTLP. This program was eye-opening to me because the people there were able to motivate me as well as students. I now feel confident that I can make a change in the world. The other students and the staff made me feel welcomed and appreciated. This experience was not only useful, but it gave me the courage to become who I really am.

Thanks for this great opportunity

National Teen Leadership Program really taught me to open up and seek out new adventures that will help me see the world in a more positive manner. This program really inspired me to seek out other programs and try my best to attend NTLP for a second year. I’ve always looked at society through a negative point of view but the mindset that I went through during the program really did change the way I feel about summer programs and activities. I am greatly appreciative for this opportunity and I took full advantage of how the program was ran.

My Life Changing Summer

This was by far the most amazing, and inspirational weekend with NTLP at Sacramento State University! My weekend was filled with amazing workshops, and listening to the most inspirational, motivating speakers. Listening to these speakers really helped me realize that being aware of a problem isn’t going to help; having the courage to make a difference is what makes us leaders. Taking that step to make a difference is what will empower our youth to make the changes we want to see because we are the next generation. We can make the difference, all we have to do is have the courage to make a stand. The workshops I experienced also showed me that I am not alone, there are many who experience the same things as I have regardless of sex, ethnicity, etc — we all stood together and were not alone. I have learned to take the lead I need to make the changes I want to see, and be aware that I am not alone, and no one else should have to be alone. I plan to follow through with all the “life-lessons” I learned and be the difference my community needs. Aside from all that I met many new people, which really helped me come out of my comfort zone and have fun. Although we only had known each other for about 3 days it was still an incredible bond we had throughout the program, which I will never forget.
