The New Hampshire Teen Institute (TI) has been holding the SLP for 20+ years. The SLP 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.
