Review for Illinois Leadership Seminars (ILS), Oak Park, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization actually changes lives. Not too many places can say that! When I went through the seminar in 2006, my life changed and I knew that I needed to pay it forward and help change the lives of the future. In fact, ILS is what inspired me to become a teacher. I had never thought about that career until ILS helped me to realize my potential and created a brand new dream for me. And now I am a successful and happy teacher and love every day of my life and I owe most of that to ILS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money! I can't think of a more deserving cause!

I went through ILS in 2006 and it completely changed my life forever. I try to think about where I would be today if some other student had gotten picked instead of me, and I know that my life would look very different. ILS is a cause that I believe in wholeheartedly and has inspired my choice of career as a high school teacher. ILS inspired my passion of being a positive role model for young people. I am grateful every day for ILS!
