National Student Leadership Week

National Student Leadership Week (NSLW) is a theme-based week dedicated to recognizing and supporting the important role of student leaders. Since 1972, the national office of the National Association of Student Councils, National Honor Society, and National Junior Honor Society has sponsored NSLW.

Each year, chapters and councils are encouraged to plan a special project to show how student leaders positively impact the school and community.

NSLW 2017 is being celebrated April 16-22. The 2017 theme is "Making a World of Difference," amplifying a two-year student leadership initiative currently underway focusing on global citizenship.
