National Society of Leadership and Success

ABOUT THE NATIONAL SOCIETY OF LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESS

The NSLS is an organization that provides a life-changing leadership program that helps students achieve personal growth, career success and empowers them to have a positive impact in their communities.

BUILDING LEADERS WHO MAKE A BETTER WORLD.

We are dream supporters – we build leaders, support people in achieving their dreams, and better the world in the process. We get people to ask the all-important question, ‘What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?’ and then give students the tools they need to drive their future forward, establish themselves as leaders among their peers and build real-work skills that will help them excel in the workplace.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

Learning is a life-long journey.
Gaining new skills are imperative for personal and professional growth.

Everyone has leadership potential.
We provide the tools and resources students need to identify and achieve their goals.

We achieve more together than we do alone.
With proper support and dedicated action, we can do extraordinary things.
