  2. You graduated from high school and completed one year of college or have one year of work experience.
  3. You are motivated to develop and grow your leadership skills in order to help others
  4. You have the desire to GIVE BACK the motivation, inspiration and enthusiasm you got from the program as an attendee.

NOTE: If you’re unable to participate in staffing this year, but would like to support the program and help other staff afford their fees, please sponsor and pay it forward.  Contact the office for details. 800-550-1950.

UPDATE: For those who were not teen participants of NTLP, but have heard of NTLP through friends and are inspired to help, you can apply to help behind-the-scenes-camp-operations. We look for individuals who demonstrate a sincere openness of heart; positive attitude, and proaction to support our mission of developing the leader within every teen today for a better world tomorrow.


Scott Higa (alumni, 1998) summed it up in this open letter to the staff:

If we can get just one student per camp to step beyond their barriers and to come out believing they are a leader, it is all worth it. I am so happy about what we have done so far.

We can do it because NTLP has helped us become leaders. I know some of us, especially me, would not think of ourselves as leaders unless we came to this camp. I do not want this program to ever end. I want to know that OUR children will be able to attend NTLP and come back with a new understanding of leadership, life, and themselves.

All of you had a part of your life changed by NTLP, or you would not continue to return to staff. I believe in you and your abilities as a leader. I promise you are making a difference in someone’s life. Don’t ever stop believing that.

During this last weekend, one of my former group members came up to me and told me how wonderful it was to be at NTLP. As tears ran down her cheeks, she said that it was a dream of hers to become an NTLP staff. Guys, we are living that dream. Be proud.”

Staffers are so committed, they pay their own room and board to attend. The fee is only $250 and includes four days and three nights stay, all meals, and your own NTLP staff polo. (Transportation is on your own.)

3) Start payments monthly via credit card prior to camp.  Communicate with the office at or call 800-550-1950.

    • Ex) $50 per week if starting May 1, in 4 installments.
