Next Generation High School Leaders Envision your Future

Spend five amazing days in the nation’s capital at the Envision Impact Series: Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit 2017. Inspired by the Inauguration, Summit Delegates in the 9th through 12th grades will work together towards national, and global solutions to the challenges your generation and our next President will face.

About the Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit

The Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit is specifically designed to empower next generation leaders as they continue on their journey toward realizing the power of their potential. The Summit, which only happens every four years, offers Summit Delegates the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness history and be inspired by world-renowned speakers, celebrate the inauguration, and to engage, participate, and be heard in a Summit Showcase that will recognize change agents with awards and scholarships.

This year marks the ninth Envision Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit held for aspirational students from around the world, who have traveled to Washington, DC for the Inaugurations of five U.S. Presidents: Barack Obama, George W. Bush, William Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan.

2017 Program Details

Presidential Inauguration Leadership High School Summit Washington, DC January 18–22, 2017


Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit “My son, Roel, was very enthusiastic when he returned from the event. He really enjoyed himself and thought that it was a great experience. He thanked us for sending him and we were grateful that he enjoyed himself. He loved the accommodations and meals that were served. He also came back with many new friends that I am sure will be a great asset to his future.” 

–Parent of 2o13 program alumnus

“I was so impressed with the Presidential Inaugural Program, that I cannot express it in words. The program is invaluable, and my daughter will carry this experience with her for a lifetime. Every child should be afforded this opportunity. Our child learned more in 5 days about the presidential and inaugural process than she has learned in an entire school year. If we could afford it, she would attend a program every summer until she's in college. No other program has prepared her more for life and given her an overall awareness of her own self-worth and value.”
