A Week-Long Retreat for High School Students

Our signature Summer Leadership Program is a dynamic residential week of leadership development, self-discovery, and social connection. SLP brings up to 100 diverse high school students from across NH and New England together through experiential workshops designed as catalysts for personal values exploration and increased school and civic engagement. Throughout the week, participants also increase their knowledge on a variety of topics including substance misuse and addiction, bullying, sexual health, conflict resolution, and health and wellness. The program connects participants with their local peers and school and community action organizations so they can channel this new energy toward the betterment of their home communities. 


NH Teen Institute’s pricing for this program is based on current grants and camp costs. The 2021 cost is $850/student, for the week of residential training, all lodging, meals, materials, and a program T-shirt. Thanks to the generous support from NH BDAS, private foundations, and individual donors, tuition assistance may be available. There is a link at the end of the registration form for those interested in a scholarship!

“TI, you have helped me see many things in my life that I never saw before, including things that I have never really thought about. You have helped me to see what a strong person I can really be when I put my mind to something or make a few little changes. This has been one of the greatestweeks of my life, and I will remember it forever. I will share my time with others to help them see what they can do. Thank you for changing my life so that I can be a better person to myself and to others around me. I cherish the friends that I have made and the memories we shared. This is the happiest I have been in a while. I feel like I can change the world.”
