Why STLF Matters: Experience

Why STLF Matters Series #5


STLF gives young people a first chance at leadership. Most leadership opportunities in life have an ‘experience’ requirement. This leads young people to the classic conundrum: how do I get the experience I need for a when all the jobs require experience?

At STLF, we recognize that everyone needs a first-chance and we give it to them. Instead of insisting our leaders have tested experience, we provide training and resources to guide students through failure to success. One of the most important aspects of experience is failure—in STLF, we often use our first leadership experiences and consequent failures when teaching and mentoring the next generations.

STLF has a variety of leadership opportunities, each builds on the former. Leading a Tour (Bus Core) is a different experience than organizing a Tour group (Regional Core), is different than running a small business (Chapter Core). To read more about students leadership experiences with STLF, check out our ‘My Stories’ section.
