LIFE Summer Program

Every summer, high school students of all grade levels are invited to join mentors, staff, faculty, and volunteers on the NWACC campus in Bentonville, Arkansas for a brain-stimulating, mood-boosting, character-building, friend-making, life-changing, two-day program. It’s filled with team-building activities, discussion panels, cookouts, and awards. Students are paired with mentors who are passionate about educating, empowering, and motivating others to get where they want to go — and further!

This FREE summer program will keep you busy, but the experience can last much longer than two days. Our mentors are available year-round, and we are always creating new events and opportunities to get you involved, and help you find a place you belong.
