The mission of the Frances Hesselbein Student Leadership Program (FHSLP) is to grow and sustain the Student 2 Student® (S2S™) Program on the local campus. Established by Military Child Education in 2006, the Frances Hesselbein Student Leadership Program offers an intensive experience for selected students to enrich their leadership and team building skills.

The week-long, intensive experience builds skills through personal and small group settings. Students gain confidence, competence, and commitment to their leadership to build their local S2S program. 

Students also have an opportunity to share their program challenges and successes with other peers to gain a new insight on improvement. Distinguished guests provide insights to overcoming challenges and to building personal character.

Student Testimonials

“At first my initial mindset of a leader was to be able to use everybody’s skills to the best of their abilities. But now I understand it’s about making them believe they can be the best they can be as well.” - Freddie H., Shoemaker High School, TX

“One thing that surprised me the most was when we were comparing our answers on the personality test in class. I realized that everyone of us had different traits and characteristics about them... but they all were amazing leaders. It showed me that everyone can be a leader in their own way.”Aubrey T., Falcon High School, CO

“This was one of the best experiences of my life, and I am truly a different person because of it.” - Camden S., Swansboro High School, NC
