"This program truly emphasizes the importance of leadership, especially in the world we're living in today. Learning the necessary leadership and public speaking skills from IvyLead gave me the confidence to run for my school's student government. I was successfully elected and became the first female student government member in my grade. This course undeniably teaches a skillset everyone needs in life." - Maddie, Sidwell Friends School

The program is focused on developing 8 key leadership and personal branding skills (see below). Workshops incorporate a mix of discussion, activities, and fun team challenges that enable students to practice leadership skills.
Presentation skills are a major component of the program, and in the workshops, every student will have the opportunity to practice public speaking in group and individual settings.
