Join the Network

Request to join our LinkedIn group and connect with Leading Out West Summer Workshop participants, donors, supportive businesses, mentors and others. Must have a LinkedIn account to access the group. 


Leading Out West Summer Workshop could not function without the help and hard work of volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering to help assist the summer programming, please contact Kathleen Tarkalson - or 406-243-6771.


Fees per participant for the program are $140. This is a bare minimum fee as the program accrues many other costs. Without funding from our generous donors, this program would not be possible. To financially assist this innovative program, please visit our donation page.


Leading Out West Summer Workshop is always interested in connecting students with those that have professional business experience and can help promote professional growth. If you’re interested in becoming a mentor, please contact Kathleen Tarkalson - or 406-243-6771
