If you’re looking for a word to describe how powerful and inspiring iSchool Initiative is, good luck. It is an absolute privilege to be a part of such a passionate and dedicated team to help influence the world around us. Watch out world, SLED is on the way to save the world!
I walked into Powdersville high school on Monday not knowing what I want to do in life and I walked away with a pretty good idea of what I now want to become.

These past four days have been spectacular and inspiring on so many levels. Choosing to be a part of SLED was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Meeting some of the most amazing people, learning new things, and becoming involved in a huge movement!
iSchool Initiative is one of the most inspirational, supportive and fun teams I’ve ever worked with. For three straight days I learned more about myself than I had ever thought possible, while learning key skills that will benefit me and my community. If I could, I would sit through this training every day for the next ten years.
I was very impressed with all of the people and how they interacted with us and how they treated us. It was very enjoyable and I learned a lot. I loved how you told us not to wait to change the world and that we need to make a change today. I was inspired by what Travis did with his idea.
