One way in which the Today Foundation helps shape young Americans into productive and respectful citizens is through the Texas Leadership Forum (TLF). The TLF, and all our high school leadership programs, seek to foster civic involvement, leadership and character building in participants while educating them about government and public policy.

TLF students will have access during the school year to individuals and opportunities not available to most high school students. Participants will meet and interact with business and professional people, elected officials and community leaders.
In addition, TLF participants will attend a one-week conference in Washington, D.C. where they will take part in substantive meetings, briefings, and presentations. They will attend committee hearings, sessions of Congress and visit offices on the Hill. The goal is to provide broad exposure to the inner-workings of government and life in the nation’s capital.
U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions serves as Honorary Chairman of the Texas Leadership Forum.
