Student Leadership Academy

What is it?

The DuPage Area Student Leadership Academy (SLA) provides high school students with the skills and knowledge necessary to be college and/or career ready. Students attend four workshop sessions throughout the year with their high school. Topics of sessions include goal setting, time management, interviewing skills, resume writing, work attitude, diversity in the workplace, and advantages of social media. 

Who participates?

DuPage County high school students in their junior or senior year. There are several high schools that participate yearly, and new schools are also welcome.

How do I sign up?

Each school has a staff member that selects, organizes and chaperones the group of students that attend. Everyone selected is required to attend all four sessions.
