How to Help

by jen

There are so many different ways you can help NTLP! We are always looking for sponsorships for teens in need to attend a camp, sponsorships to underwrite program costs, donations to help us expand and grow, or in-kind materials or services. The following are ways that you can support NTLP and make a difference in a teen’s life.

YOU can make a huge difference in the life of a teen!

In high school I used to be the type that would hang back and not say anything because I was afraid no one would listen to me or my ideas, but NTLP taught me that anyone could be a leader, even the quiet ones like me. After three short days I emerged a new person, armed with the tools necessary to make a positive impact on my community, and the belief, from people I had just met, that I could make a difference in the world. The feeling was completely empowering! If it hadn’t been for [my sponsor] I would have never have had this opportunity. Thank you so much!”

Sponsor a Student

Approximately 30% of our student attendees have difficulty raising the sponsorship fee due to family hardship, local economic difficulties or language barriers. It is our goal to find sponsorships for all students who wish to attend leadership training. The student can be someone you know or someone from your school or community. You can also make a contribution on behalf of someone from our database who has expressed a sincere desire to attend, but is having difficulty raising their sponsorship fees.

Please complete our Donate Now page and let us know the name of the student you wish to sponsor. We’ll direct you thru a secure payment process.

Give a Cash Donation

Cash donations help send a student with limited resources to an NTLP camp. Cash donations will also support our expansion efforts into other states across the United States. We appreciate any amount you can give!

Don’t forget to find out if your employer provides a “matching gift” to contributions you make to NTLP.

Please complete our Donate Now page and we’ll direct you thru a secure payment process.
