ALStar Youth Leadership Registration 

Conference criteria…..

This conference is specifically designed for students (high school sophomores in West Tennessee) who have incredible potential but lack the encouragement and resources to take their talents to the next level. Students will have their eyes opened to different career paths, how to prepare for post-secondary education, and learn steps that need to be taken to make their present goals a future reality. The purpose of the conference is to give this select group of students a chance to develop leadership skills, soft skills (communication, teamwork, adaptability, dependability, flexibility, etc.), hear from leaders in the region, and learn the importance of community involvement. Student(s) will be selected by their superintendent/principal/counselor to attend. 


If you have any questions about the Summit, please contact West Star at (731) 881-7298.
