1. Identity Crisis
Students in secondary schools struggle with an identity crisis.
2. Cultural Approach to Leadership
Leadership is mostly seen as occupying a position.
3. Mass Ignorance of the Citizens
Most citizens can’t recognize or distinguish between bad, good, better and the best leaders.
4. Absence of Leadership Education in the Secondary School Curriculum
There is an absence of mass education on leadership. Most secondary school students go through secondary school without ever learning or experiencing any form of leadership education or skills training.
These factors lead to a dearth of leadership and significant unfulfilled impact potential amongst youth and in society as a whole.
We recognize that Quality Leadership Education and skills training is as essential to a youth’s success as literacy.
We aim for 5 main outcomes for our beneficiaries;
• They are more conscious of their influence and the leaders within them and are able to recognize good leadership when they see one
• They have increased leadership skills, digital skills, emotional stability, healthy personal identity, increased academic results and assertiveness
• They exhibit creativity and critical thinking, able to solve problems and communicate solutions effectively
• They see themselves as drivers of change, become changemakers and active citizens
• They pay it forward by volunteering, starting initiatives, influencing and raising more young leaders in their communities
We first connect with them and get to know them through fun questions
We assess their current state of knowledge with a mindset pulse check
Engage them in an open conversation about the theme and discover gaps in their knowledge
Help them unlearn the wrong information and learn the right information
Fill the gaps in their knowledge and skillset
Empower and encourage them to start to influence others through peer to peer interaction
Set high expectations for them and dare them to rise to meet them
Give them opportunities to identify problems and shoulder responsibility for creating solutions
Let them lead
Provide continuous support and let the process continue

Abigail learnt about what authentic leadership really is and the importance of taking personal responsibility through our transformational leadership program three years ago. Three years later she fundraised and went back to her alma mater to teach them about leadership. Now more students have recognized they have opportunities to lead, starting with leading themselves.
Thousands of students have been completely transformed, but millions more are still waiting for their chance to access leadership education.
