24th Annual International Student Leadership Conference

Limerick, Ireland
July 14-20, 2014 (including travel days)
Conference Fee per Participant - $800 USD

We are excited to announce our 24th Annual International Student Leadership Conference. For 2014, we are going international to experience Student Programs with our friends at Limerick, Ireland! At Old Dominion University in August 2013, we had more 450 participants from 20 different countries attend our conference. We aim to have even more participants and countries involved for the 2014 conference.

Who: The conference is open to students between the ages of 15 and 22.

What: The ISLC is an incredible opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills, learn more about Operation Smile and have tons of fun.

When & Where: The 2014 ISLC will take place July 14th - 20th at the University of Limerick in Limerick, Ireland.

How Much: The registration fee is $800 USD, which includes lodging, meals and costs associated with activities during the conferences. Students will also be responsible for their airfare to Limerick (Shannon Airport) and the cost of obtaining a tourist visa (if applicable). To secure your spot, you must pay a $200 non-refundable deposit when you register.


U.S. Students: The registration process is a little different this year as we have added a tool to help fundraise for your conference fee. Once you have paid the deposit to secure your spot, you can send the link to your page to family and friends to help sponsor you!

Registration for U.S. Students will open on Monday, October 28th at 6PM EST. Another email will be sent out when registration opens. If you have previously attended an ISLC, you will need your username and password from registering for ISLC ODU or ISLC Georgetown. It is VERY IMPORTANT that you choose an email address that you check frequently — this cannot be changed.

Parents/Teachers: If you have any questions regarding the conference and what it entails, please feel free to reach out to us via email at before registration opens.

International Students: If you are an international student, please email with your name, country, school name and interest. We will reach out to you when registration opens with the next steps.
