The 2018 SWASAP Student Leadership Conference returns again for another year! The SWASAP Student Leadership Conference will be held September 21- 23, 2018 at Sky Ranch in Van, TX.  This year’s theme is “Empowering a Legacy of Leaders”.  We will have a Pre-Collegiate track and a College track available. Paradigm Shift will be providing the programming for all workshops for all participants.

Our targeted outcomes are:

• Develop community among students.

• Create opportunities for student leadership skills to grow.

• Identify and develop individual leadership strengths.

• Provide opportunities for students to strengthen communication skills.

• Diversity training and empathy.

Payment is accepted by credit card, check, or purchase order. Details for how to submit payment are detailed in the registration page.

The SWASAP Student Leadership Conference is for all TRIO Students in grades 9 and above.  While we understand that TRIO often involves students in lower grades, the curriculum and events of the conference are tailored towards students from 9th grade to college level.
