Leadership Week

We want to thank everyone involved in Leadership Week 2011, from the employees to the preferred retailers, and especially the NOLS grads. The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts, and if you look down at the week's worth of events you will see NOLSies throughout the country leading trail clean-ups, cooking clinics, movie nights, and NOLS information sessions. It's a wonderful thing.

*Send us pictures, tweets, and links from your events!

**We have a limited supply of LW t-shirts left (S, M, L only). E-mail us with your address and we will send one out to you!


We would love your feedback on how you thought Leadership Week went this year. E-mail with your ideas and suggestions for next year. We would much appreciate it.


Take the quizes, watch the videos, see each day's events.
