GapBuster’s Leaders-in-Training program has been a cornerstone of our organization since its inception. Students not only develop essential leadership skills but go on to impact their community in meaningful ways. Academic, civil, and cultural enrichment, college tours, and leadership conferences are what set the LIT program apart.
It is through the ability to participate in GapBuster’s programs while cultivating leadership skills and service-learning that makes this program an invaluable experience for college-bound high school students.
We have meetings for individual programs at different times and locations, not to mention our events, conferences, and competitions.

“The LIT and HIV/AIDS Peer Education program have enriched my passion to be involved in global affairs and to pursue a career in Global Public Health.” Camille Meeks, Trinity University alumni
