The Big Idea


In schools, colleges, and the workplace, there’s a growing leadership and engagement crisis – one that executives and educators rank as a top concern. Yet driving engagement is an ongoing challenge, and the average age for formal leadership development is 42.[i]

Equipping kids with the skills they need to take the lead serves them well today and prepares them to engage and lead effectively through college and their future life and career.
