Active Staff

Over 90% of our staff were once delegates themselves. Active Staff members plan and prepare for months prior to the week-long program. Outside of MLW, they are busy leaders in their schools, communities and careers in a variety of fields. See a sample of the MLW Staff Accomplishments.

Program Directors are selected in the fall of the preceding year and staff applications are available in January. Our staff to student ratio in core programs is 1:7.
