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

Rating: 5 stars  

Illinois Leadership Seminars is not just "another leadership thing". The leaders, volunteers, and families of both are changed after this weekend seminar. When I found out I was selected for the program in 2012, I was nervous, apprehensive, and a little bit scared. I didn't know that the people would become my family. I didn't know that the program would help me realize my leadership potential AND give me the tools I needed to put that potential to work. Before this seminar, I was a close-minded kid who definitely didn't think she was a leader. After this seminar, I became an open-minded, strong willed leader who does her best to help others see their own potential. ILS has been one of the best things in my life.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended ILS in 2012, and because I had such a great experience that I came back this year on staff. You may think you know what a "leadership seminar" is, but ILS doesn't fit whatever you're thinking. ILS teaches confidence, motivation, better listening skills, and how to be yourself (unapologetically), all while creating a family that will last a lifetime. ILS is truly the best experience I have had in my life. I encourage everyone who has the opportunity to be a part of it to stay involved.

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

The only change I would make to ILS would be to have the sources and the facility to open ILS to more than one student from a school.
