After visiting several schools, talking to teachers and administrators, and actually presenting leadership workshops to youth, we have recognized the need to promote leadership education. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to develop ways advocating leadership education in high schools, through such means as conferences, camps, school in-service programs, and leadership texts. We have developed various programs focusing on many aspects of leadership, including motivation, conflict resolution, communication, ethics, decision making, vision, service, and group dynamics. We strongly believe that the merits of our programs, coupled with our theoretical background, will profoundly impact students' lives. Leadership is not a nebulous, exclusionary, elitist phenomenon, but rather an interdisciplinary, learning, synergistic concept that will improve today's students. Leadership can make a positive difference on today's youth for tomorrow's benefit.
