95% of secondary school students are teenagers under 18 years old who don’t see themselves as leaders or people with influence. Access to quality leadership education and skills training can reduce risky behaviour. Encourage pro-social attitudes and transform thousands of lives every year in our secondary schools.
Leadership education helps students take responsibility for their future and keeps students in school, especially girls. Our training sessions encourage them to aim high and reach their potential. They experience a significant boost in their confidence, experience improvement in their academics and complete their secondary school education. They enrol for and complete higher education studies, and earn higher cumulative grade point averages.
When a student gets access to quality leadership education, they have a better understanding of their identity, purpose and values. It changes the life of the student, and the student now has greater clarity of her/his values and purpose.
Students get a better understanding of their office as citizens and the SDGs, and which of the goals they want to take action on. It helps them recognize they have opportunities to lead and be the change, starting with leading themselves. They register to vote, do not sell their votes and vote based on their new-found values during elections.
