Northeast Denver Leadership Week (NDLW), founded by Councilman Chris Herndon, offers high school students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to connect with civic and industry leaders throughout Denver. The program’s goal is to grow the next generation of leaders by educating students about careers in leadership and inspiring and motivating them to pursue such roles in their own careers.
Our programming consists of a week-long series of site visits and personal meetings with leaders who are finding success and driving change in Denver. NDLW is free for all participants, and lunch is provided each day.
Students currently in grades 9, 10, or 11 who live or go to school in Denver are eligible to apply!
