Student Leadership Summit

Leadership Program for High School Students

Young people have an amazing ability to lead! This is not only borne out in the statistics… this has been my reality. Both as a high school student, as well as leading hundreds of student leadership programs over the past 35 years!

The problem that exists are:

  • Students are not aware or convinced they can be a leader
  • They are not trained in the art and skill of leadership
  • They are not given ample opportunities to lead

Contact us to schedule a Student Leadership Summit for your students. This is best conducted in an all-day Saturday event, or 2-3 evening sessions.
