About The Student Experience
The Student Experience at the 2020 National Training Seminar (NTS)  is an opportunity for Student 2 Student®(S2S®) leaders and sponsors to team up with each other, and get inspired and motivated to develop new skills and create lasting relationships.

The Student Experience gathers S2S® leader teams together from participating programs. It empowers them through motivational activities and speakers focused on leadership, to support the transition of highly mobile students in their new school and community.
