Our Mission

Building Leaders Who Make a Better World

When the NSLS began 20 years ago, we decided to help the greatest number of people in the most significant way. We achieved this through a dedicated mission to impact the world by building stronger, more successful leaders.

Our philosophy is that we accomplish more together than we do alone. We have seen that with proper support and dedicated action, people can achieve extraordinary things for themselves and the greater community.
