The Midwest Leadership School creates opportunities to learn about the history of Unitarian Universalism, yourself as an individual, and your role as a member of a congregation in a larger movement grounded in liberal theology. MWLS attendees come away from the experience with a better understanding of healthy organizational practices.
There is an Adult School and a Youth School, and MWLS is unique among UU leadership schools in that the schools are designed to do several activities together and safely interact.
Anyone wishing to increase their leadership skills in a church context are encouraged to attend. Many incoming board members and presidents find this to be an excellent preparation for their service. Many youth enjoy being with like-minded peers, and the supportive environment enables them to help discern and activate their leadership passions.
