As the USF chapter of the NSLS presses onward into what is bound to be another successful semester, we hope everyone had a great break, and wish them luck heading into this semester’s classes. Last semester we accepted many new members into the organization, and achieved one of the highest membership percentages that we have ever had. This year we hope to go above and beyond that statistic. We hope that you, members and prospective members, will join us on the quest to becoming great leaders. Be sure to keep up with our latest news and events by checking back here regularly, as well as looking for us on USF campus. We want as many people as possible to join our team and acquire the skills necessary to be a leader.
On behalf of the executive board, we wish you the best of luck, and hope to see you soon.

Community Service Events:
Recently the NSLS chapter at USF has been preoccupied with giving back to the community. The executive board is reaching out to local charities as well as other student organizations that aid good causes. As of late the NSLS has been actively supporting both Metropolitan Ministries, a shelter that assists low income families with re-integration into society, and also the Criminology Honors Society’s fight against human trafficking.
Just this past weekend, a group of society members traveled to assist the “People for Trees” organization; a non-profit group that began in 1997 as a fight against destruction of the tree canopy. The dedicated society members arose before the sun, and helped conduct the annual biking event: “Tour de North Port.” They assisted in everything from set up of the rest stops (locations of refreshment for the bikers), to directing traffic during arrival. The day culminated in a large clean-up effort, followed by a gathering at Imagine School.
The USF chapter of NSLS continually strives to assist the community, as well as gain new members to aid in the support. If you are interested in assisting the society, feel free to contact us, and also inquire about membership if you are not currently a member. We are always looking for young people that are interested in becoming emerging leaders, as well as helping to give back to the community.
