Group Assignments

 The Alabama Lions High School Leadership Forum encourages diversity, meeting new people, and leadership development. In an effort to maximize the benefit to forum attendees, students coming from the same school will be assigned to different groups. We believe this will allow each student to focus on themselves and their own development while making new friends.  Students from the same school are allowed to room together if availability permits; but, will be assigned to different small groups for activities.


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the the delegate chair.
