Our hope is that stu- dents who attend NDLS leave with the tools they need to go back into, their community and impact the world around them. Each student who attends the program is encouraged to go into their community, leverage their leadership skills, and give back through service. We chal— lenge all of our program alumni to donate 100 hours of community service throughout the year.” North Dakota Leadership Seminar, established in 1981, is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring leadership skills and a spirit of volunteerism in the state’s young people. Every high school in the state is eligible to select a stu— dent to attend the seminar free of charge. Organized by volunteers, the seminar is financially supported by dona- tions from businesses, service organizations, individuals, and foundations from across the state.
