What is MYLead? As a community, we have a great need for positive and forward thinking leaders.  And as individuals, we have the opportunity to take a leadership role in just about any aspect of life.   The mission of MYLead is to help young leaders, like you, realize their potential. And build the confidence, to transform that potential into positive action.  By accepting this nomination, you have the opportunity to meet motivated leaders from hundreds of high schools throughout Michigan, form life-long friendships, and be part of a team that will champion you for years to come!  

What do we do at the conference?  We spend a weekend sharing ideas, hearing from community leaders, motivational speakers, and learning about ourselves through personal goal setting and leadership exercises.  Not only that, but many of us form personal friendships with other leaders throughout the state that champion us in everything we do, and continue to make a difference in our lives beyond the conference.  As a young leader, you will want to come ready for a challenging, fun, and truly unique experience.

What sets MYLead apart from other conferences? The passion, excitement, and drive that come from this group of people is unbelieveable!  Our organization was founded by stupendous leaders over a decade ago and has impacted the lives of thousands of young leaders ever since.  Heather Lake, current president and Dr. David Sweetman, co-founder of MYLead, continues to lead the organization comprised of 100% volunteers who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of people like you!  

When is the Conference? You have the option to select which of the two conferences being hosted this year is most convenient for you during registration.  One is available in May and the other in June.  Regardless of which conference you choose, attendance for the ENTIRE weekend will be mandatory.  Check in will be available on Thursday evening (for a nominal overnight fee) or Friday morning before the program begins.  Check out will be on Sunday, following closing ceremonies.
