Calling all educators!

 

We are thrilled to launch a NEW LEADERSHIP ACADEMY K-12 Curriculum! It includes the K-3rd POWER PASSPORT program, which focuses on important Personal Values and Social Skills for kids, as well as our 4th-12th Organizational + Time Management System, which includes

Mindy Lockard's Social Skill + Confidence-building curriculum.

Both programs are designed to help develop confident + mindful future leaders.

Please see the full program descriptions below. 

Each Passport or Planner System is designed to build on important, age-appropriate social, academic and organizational skills. The curriculum builds on previous materials,

year after year. 

In addition to the POWER Skill Passport and Planner, all elementary, junior high, and high school systems include a Leadership Academy "Power Skill of the Week" weekly video curriculum for teachers, as well as family resources and tools to help students bring their organizational and social skills to life. Each 2-4 minute video includes a skill + application goals that teachers can use to spark important conversations, and to encourage confidence and social accountability.
