National Student Leadership Academy

2020 Virtual JAG National Student Leadership Academy | December 1-3, 2020

The National Student Leadership Academy has a 23-year history of being the capstone event for JAG students, therefore, we are committed to maintaining this prestigious event by transitioning the 2020 NSLA to a virtual event.

The VNSLA will feature leadership activities, daily plenary sessions, exhibits, educational workshops, introduction to National Career Association, competitive events, and networking opportunities.

VNSLA participants will be able to access content all day during the VNSLA dates and students are encouraged to explore all the conference offerings inside and outside of class time.

JAG Specialists will receive a proposed content sequence for each day and are also encouraged to use a portion of their time with JAG students each day to watch the plenary session (live or on-demand) and participate in a leadership and professional development workshops.
