Middle Grades Leadership Program
Let us guide your 6th-10th grader on a journey to develop a comprehensive suite of leadership skills such as personal initiative, responsibility and self-confidence!
We believe leadership skills require a practical setting to truly blossom. Our 6th-10th grade Leadership Program is designed to train our young leaders to independently problem solve, take initiative, formally present ideas, design a business plan, and execute it!
In each 12-week semester, our leaders explore the skills required to be an effective leader while practicing with the younger students. Then they are empowered with creating, designing and presenting their own activity in a nurturing setting, being fully supported by our staff for logistics and developing their presentation skills.
Students emerge from our program with pride in their abilities as newly minted Jr. Program Managers!
How It Works
Join us one day per week for a 12-week semester! Apply to our program and receive comprehensive leadership training and work experience as a Jr. Program Manager! When not actively working on leadership, students may participate in any of our activities or spend time on their own schoolwork, mentored by our staff members.
