“TEEN TRUTH’s Leadership Summit is an experience that is unique, motivating, and will rock your school culture!”

Nicole Agnes

School Counselor, Talbert Middle School



Lifetouch and TEEN TRUTH are proud to offer the 2017 Alaska Leadership Summit. Focused on social-emotional issues and thought provoking leadership models this event is poised to become the premiere solution for leadership development efforts across the state of Alaska. Featuring award-winning content, powerful speaking performances, and workshop-style sessions this full-day event gives students a critical understanding of the issues currently affecting school culture and empowers them to develop an action plan that addresses identified concerns. Overall, the goal of this life-changing event is to produce campus wide initiatives that will improve school safety and build campus culture.


This student-centered event gives student leaders a critical understanding of the issues currently affecting school climate and empowers them to develop a comprehensive action plan to address the identified concerns. The program is offered to schools that want to improve the impact of existing leadership groups by developing a TEEN TRUTH inspired action plan that youth can use to produce campus wide activities that improve safety, connect students and that ultimately enhance school climate.


Ideal for middle school or high school aged audiences; our focus is to help student leaders understand that being an effective leader is about more than producing dances, rallies, or theme days. The TEEN TRUTH: Leadership Summit teaches the importance of their elected position and how to use campus activities to improve student life. Geared to be a full day experience, this powerful event works to redefine leadership and teach important skills such as:


  • Possessing a greater understanding of what it means to be a leader
  • Brainstorming critical campus issues that are negatively affecting school culture
  • Developing tangible solutions that can be implemented on campus
  • Creating a year long activity calendar that focuses on connecting the student body
