We believe good leaders should take time to give back to their community. The ALC provides low-commitment service days each semester. We provide transportation and food for all participants.

Leadership conferences

Leadership conferences provide an opportunity for you to delve deeper into a variety of leadership topics, while sharing your own experiences and networking with your peers.
