Center for Leadership: Be the Change, Lead the Change

Leadership is learned. The Center for Leadership guides, engages, and teaches students to achieve true leadership abilities.

We use mentors, teachers, and community leaders to help students develop this lifelong skill. It is a skill our students use today in their classrooms, in student organizations, and in the community. It is a skill that becomes a part of who they are and who they will become.
