Are you...

  • An engaged Chapter Leader, Advisor, or student member?

The Learning Guild Overview

NSLS is looking for driven, enthusiastic leaders to further our mission to make leadership more engaging, innovative, and applicable for the next generation.

Learning Guild members meet together in community or in small teams, to create new program activities, provide advice to the NSLS team about future programs, analyze our program effectiveness, or discover new innovations for leadership development.

Selected Learning Guild members from around the nation will have an opportunity to participate in leadership development challenges or collaborations.  You’ll come away with tangible skills, memorable experiences and a network of committed leaders to help jumpstart your learning, career, participation in transformative experiences together, and – of course – earn some swag and kudos along the way. 

Returning Learning Guild members must still complete the application form below and will earn more benefits!

The Learning Guild runs from September 2021 - May 2022.

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive team. If you have any questions, email us at or
