Preteen Leadership Institute Students

The Preteen Leadership Institute was established in 2003 as a way to expand the mission of NHRI Leadership Mentoring. Preteen Leadership Institute is a summer program for outstanding young leaders who will be entering sixth grade. Elementary schools in Lincoln recommend preteens who have the exceptional capacity to make a positive difference in other students. Those preteens are then invited to come to the University for a one-week leadership development camp. Each year we have approximately 80-90 participants attend either our morning or afternoon session. Outstanding participants at Preteen Leadership Institute are invited back the following year to serve as Junior Teaching Assistants.

Topics covered at the Preteen Leadership Institute include:

  • Difference Makers
  • Finding Talents
  • Understanding Others
  • Investing in Others
  • Celebrating Our Uniqueness
