We believe that values-based leadership is the cornerstone of positive change. By empowering young people with character, purpose, and competence needed to become ethical leaders we are creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond the individual.

For over 12 000 young people our 3-year leadership programme has instilled values – awareness, focus, creativity, integrity, perseverance and service – equipping these leaders to drive meaningful change in their communities and beyond.

"The program's introduction at our school was a great blessing as it came when our school was plagued by negative elements of gansterism, ill-discipline, poor academic performance, dilapidated infrastructure and low teacher morale. It ignited whithin us the passion to turn our institution into a school on the path to excellence. It came in as the third arm of support for development and progress."
