The Leadership Program
The goal of our Leadership Program is to provide boys with the encouragement, leadership skills, and spiritual support necessary for them to make meaningful contributions to their communities and begin a life-long journey of leadership and service.
The Leadership Program employs a specially designed curriculum developed by our staff. It incorporates the latest methodology for teaching key leadership skills – such as listening, empathy, awareness, etc. – while emphasizing the importance and means of applying these skills to community service endeavors. The training program consists of approximately 60 hours of classroom instruction, plus hands-on field exercises and more than 100 hours of service-learning projects and community service activities.
Our curriculum provides the caliber of leadership training typically available only to corporate executives. It features a challenging workshop series of lessons and exercises on communication, goal setting, team building, project planning, decision-making, and other leadership dynamics. The curriculum culminates in a Pay It Forward project, created and implemented by the students, and a final graduation ceremony.
