    Leadership is an academic discipline that is being taught in all schools. Our students will receive lectures from top professors on finding one’s own leadership style, critical thinking, innovation, presentation and public speaking skills, and developing good communication skills. Students will practice these newly acquired tools while volunteering on community service projects, and by participating in leadership activities.

    The program is divided into 4 focus areas: Dartmouth College (8 days); Wildlife Monitoring and Safari (9 days); Service Work at a Primary School (8 days); and The African Leadership Academy (3 days).
