Students Today Leaders Forever (STLF) is committed to making a difference by revealing leadership through service, relationships, and action. STLF is a response to the question all young people have asked: how can we make a difference that’s bigger than ourselves? At STLF, we believe that every young person has the capacity to be a leader, and we support student-initiated service and action while providing leadership training and opportunities for peer leadership.
STLF develops leadership through Pay It Forward Tours, student-led, cross-country road trips on which students travel to a new community daily to volunteer with local nonprofits to address prominent social issues in the area through service, as well as through local workshops and summer leadership camps. To date, STLF has directly impacted more than 32,000 young people through self-initiated leadership development opportunities, resulting in more than 400,000 hours of volunteer community service in 49 states.
This donation from Mill City Credit Union will mobilize students to volunteer in communities across our region and make it possible for underserved students to participate in STLF programs which will develop their leadership skills and capacity. These experiences equip and inspire students to be the leaders we need them to be now, and set them on a trajectory to be change-making leaders for years to come. -Isaiah Allen, Executive Director of Students Today Leaders Forever
