How we guide your student
You’ve heard the saying, “Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders.” As your student moves through high school, they are pursuing the transition from “today’s youth” to “tomorrow’s leader”—and you want them to move into adulthood with a sense of confidence in their ability to lead themselves and to inspire the people around them. Most importantly, you want them to have the self-awareness and grit they need to create a happy, meaningful, and successful life. This is what our High School Leadership Program is all about.
Mentors in this program guide students to master three core skills: making and keeping commitments, maximizing their time and energy, and developing and nurturing healthy relationships. Each course is built on projects that challenge students to apply these skills in their daily lives, including volunteer and humanitarian work experiences, deep personal reflection, and weekly accountability check-ins. To support their projects, students explore works on leadership by some of the world’s top authorities. These courses also help students prepare for college and develop healthy and effective relationships with money.
By completing leadership courses, students gain deep insight into their life’s purpose and prepare to enter adulthood with a rare sense of maturity and self-direction. They are equipped with a toolbelt of principles that help them uncover the right course of action in whatever challenges they face. As a result, they set a positive example for others no matter where they choose to go next.
