CGTI is a week-long youth leadership training for middle and high school students who want to learn leadership skills, meet other youth from around the state, and become empowered to create change in their schools and communities.

With a focus on personal responsibility, decision-making and leading to change, this conference is for future leaders who want to make a real difference in their community

CGTI teens will learn to:

- Develop skills to be an advocate for positive change;

- Make a difference in their community;

- Communicate more effectively; and

- Prevent drug and alcohol abuse.

This years’ conference will be held at Eastern Illinois University July 21-25.

The ISA will be awarding 60 scholarships statewide. Scholarships are filled quickly.

For scholarship consideration, applications must be submitted to the local Sheriff’s office or ISA, not directly to CGTI.
