NINJA Youth Leadership Conference

Calling all future community leaders!

The NINJA Conference and COVID 19.

USILC is monitoring the situation as it pertains to COVID 19. Currently the NINJA Conference is still be planned for June 1-4, 2020. We realize that things can change rapidly and we are working on other options for the conference such as changing the dates to a later time in the summer in hopes that the virus has worked its course by then or finding a way to provide the conference digitally.

We realize that with everything going on you may need more time to fill out an application. The application deadline will be extended to April 30, 2020.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach to me at

“My experience this summer at the USU Ninja Youth Leadership conference was absolutely phenomenal and the best highlight of my summer. While I was there I learned a lot of really important skills/lessons about being an advocate/leader in my community.” ~ Courtney
