But don't just take our word for it...here's what PARENTS of our recent delegates have to say about LTC!

"The skills that my daughter learned in her 4 days at LTC are skills she will use all her life. Everyone at LTC was so enthusiastic and encouraging! As soon as we were greeted , I knew that my daughter's experience at LTC would not only be educational, but fun! When we got there, my fears disappeared, knowing that my daughter was in good hands. I'm grateful for the experience that LTC and Kreps Middle School offered my daughter and am happy she had the opportunity to come to LTC!"

Sally Rushford - Parent, Melvin H. Kreps Middle School

"Danielle was a little skeptical at first about attending LTC, being that she didn't know anyone or what it was about. Once we dropped her off, we hardly heard from her! She had more fun and learned more than any of us expected. When we picked her up, she was already talking about being a Jr. Counselor. Thank you for offering this outstanding opportunity and the value it gives to these students. Looking forward to next year!"

Anthony Gaetano - Parent, Monmouth Regional High School

"My daughter Hayley chose LTC over attending a sports camp that week. She couldn't have made a better decision! She returned Saturday energized and excited after having what she called "one of the best times of her life". The friends she made and the life lessons she learned far out weigh any week at a sports camp. I know she will carry this experience with her for a long time. She can't wait for next year! Keep doing what you're doing!"

Jim Kellar - Parent, Kingsway Regional High School

"This was my son's first experience at LTC, and he LOVED it! He was so excited to get there and was hoping that his experience would meet his expectations and I believe it surpassed them! I was impressed with the townhouses that were used for their housing. The staff members were very welcoming as we arrived and helpful in showing us were the houses were and guiding us to the rooms. My son absolutely wants to attend again next year! overall excellent experience!"

Margaret Biondolillo - Parent, South Brunswick High School

"This was a life changing experience that I would recommend every parent allow their child to experience. When I asked my son how his experience at LTC was he replied "awesome"! He has connected with students from all over New Jersey. He has the resources and knowledge to use the skills LTC taught him for the rest of his life. He is already planning to attend LTC Advanced next summer!"

Janice Savage - Parent, St. Peter's Prep

"My son had an amazing time at LTC! He did not know what to expect but as soon as we arrived, he was thrilled by the enthusiasm everyone demonstrated. Even though he already felt competent as a student leader, he was exposed to many new skills and ideas that will enable him to become more confident. He also became very close to a lot of his fellow delegates and counselors, developing friendships that continued once the session was over. Basically he had tons of fun while learning valuable skills! LTC was well worth it!"

Laura Kalik - Parent, Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School

"Juliana absolutely loved LTC - so much so that the very first thing she said when it was over was that she planned to apply to be a counselor next year. She has attended leadership trainings in the past; this was markedly different. It was more practical, supportive yet challenging, and she gained constructive insights into the behaviors and interactions of peers and others, which will serve her well. She was also struck by the longevity and loyalty of the LTC alumni. The program packs quite a bit into a short week. Thank you LTC!"

Jennifer Velez - Parent, Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School

"Every concerned-mom email had been answered timely and built my confidence, but we still all had nervousness on drop-off day which quickly dissolved as we were put at ease by the organized & welcoming nature of the LTC folks! From the social aspect to the fun songs & games, to the talent show, to the speeches she made & the way she learned to respect herself, to all the team building exercises - she LOVED it all. We hardly heard from her - a good sign - save for the late night "xoxo" texts. I knew she had been greatly affected by her experiences because she just couldn't fully explain all she'd been through as she was overwhelmed. Kudos to LTC, which is a great building block for a pro-school, pre-teen!"

Annika Cioffi - Parent, Union Middle School

"There isn't a day that goes by since my daughter came home from LTC that she hasn't shared something from her time there. She enjoyed everything; the people, the workshops, the warm, comfortable atmosphere. Whatever you are doing, keep it up because it is working!"

Linda Golden - Parent, Burlington Township High School
