Program Overview

Go For It is an inspirational and motivational experience that builds servant leaders through a focus on personal discovery and skills development.  Through in-depth guided discussion, small group activities, and team building, teens hone leadership skills and explore their own values away from the pressures of their daily lives.

In a rare space where teens can truly be themselves, students have fun, forge lasting bonds with peers from throughout the Commonwealth and return home better prepared to be effective servant leaders in their home, school and community.

Programming for the conference includes, but is not limited to:

  • Self-exploration and understanding your leadership style
  • Celebrating and understanding diversity and inclusion
  • Building and strengthening relationships
  • Discussing current social issues & addressing issues in your community
  • Learning from the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
