Leadership Academy

Vision Statement:

It is our vision to evangelize, disciple, and multiply.

Mission Statement:

It is our mission to educate, train, and mentor youth so that they will have the skills necessary to be effective leaders in their families, churches, and communities.

Student Application Process:

It is our desire to recruit youth in public school, private school, home-school, no-school, and those that have already graduated to participate. When classrooms reach their capacity, then the older youth, will get preference as they are closer to entering the work force.  All youth are invited to attend with no respect to their gender, religious preference, cultural status, or economic backgrounds. 


The Leadership Diploma program is free to youth.  Diplomas are earned after completing all 12 leadership modules, course application exercises, and field supervision by mentors.  If youth miss a module, they will have the opportunity to make it up. After graduation, students will be able to add the diplomas to applications and resumes resulting in a higher possibility of employment.

Youth will receive the Leadership Academy Diploma upon the successful completion of its 12 Modules.
