Based on a program formulated at Notre Dame University by Rev. Thomas Chambers, the student leadership institute is designed to identify and respond to the current needs of young people.  It is open to all high school students who wish to learn about leadership and improve their already existing decision making and problem solving skills through the teachings of the Catholic faith.

To deal effectively with people is one of the most important skills a young person will acquire.  It is believed that leadership can be learned and will enhance a student’s education and life by improving his or her interpersonal relationships.

ISLI is supported by the Most Rev. Joseph C. Bambera, Bishop of Scranton, who has offered his vision of servant leadership in his pastoral letter, Wounded and Loved, Regathering the Scattered.  The intent of our ISLI program is to gather young people from around the eleven counties of the Diocese of Scranton for a faith-filled experience that enhances leadership skills and promotes learning, sharing and prayer.  Through ISLI, the Diocese desires to foster servant leadership and to nurture the continued development of value-based Christian decision making.
