It is our belief that anyone can be a leader. A leader does not fit in a particular box. It's not always the extrovert in the front of your class. It's not always the straight A student who is chairperson of every club. And it's not someone from a particular country or part of the world.

A leader can come from anywhere and it is our firm belief that if you want to be a leader, then you can be.

We believe in the youth of today and we fully believe in their potential to change themselves, change their communities, and impact the world.
