Through our 36-week Leadership Academy, selected high school seniors from local high schools are given the opportunity to grow into responsible young adults, empowered to break the cycle of bad habits and thinking in their lives.
Students go through an extensive application and interview process before being accepted into the program. Once selected, they receive spiritual discipleship, leadership development, and soft skills training. Classes are held for 3.5 hours every Saturday for an entire school year.
If students successfully complete the Leadership Academy, they become eligible for our Higher Education Program where they are given the opportunity to attend either a private university or our Global Effect Career Institute. Earning a professional degree or acquiring a skilled trade gives them greater ability to break the cycle of poverty in their lives and families.
