The Trent Lott Leadership Institute, since its inception in 2000, has had as its primary mission to prepare young people to assume positions of leadership in an increasingly complex world. We are particularly interested in students in the state of Mississippi. To that end, we will be hosting the 2020-2021 Emerging Leader Workshop Retreat virtually for the newly elected Student Body or Student Council President and Junior Class President of any Mississippi high school.

This virtual event begins with a Friday evening meet-and-greet at which students will meet and hear from an expert in the field of public policy. Saturday brings workshops and breakout sessions led by first-rate faculty and professionals, examining Leadership Principles, Local Leadership, Civic Engagement and Preparing for College.

In addition to tangible informational take-a-ways, participants have a unique opportunity to develop rapport with other young leaders in our state. The information exchange among peer groups provides an immediate reinforcement for the work being done in the breakout sessions. 

We have limited the number of participants to fifty on a first come basis. The registration fee is $50 and is due before the registration deadline.
