Besides being an incredible learning opportunity, our leadership development workshops cater to young people of all backgrounds, giving them a chance to think outside the box and gain invaluable real-world experience.
Our on-site activities encourage them to step outside their comfort zone and indulge in new, innovative ways to communicate.
Through various team-building experiences, they are equipped with the necessary tools to lead creative and professional projects, realizing their true potential by simply believing in themselves and taking that first step.
Our workshops are fun, challenging, and designed to help our students develop leadership and technical skills that enable them to compete in an increasingly technological environment. Each of our classroom modules has specific items for discussion including Visionary Leadership, The Power of Vision, Types of Leadership, Team Building, and Goal Setting. Each student receives an iBook curriculum, iPad, and training that can be used to research, write, and pursue educational and career goals. Upon successful completion of the workshop program, students may be able to keep their iPad to reinforce the concepts that they learned during the program and support their goals.
During workshop sessions, students participate in activities and dialog with facilitators (see the Leadership Team) and other students. They also collaborate in small groups to develop and cultivate leadership practices, leading to the creation and completion of a technology based project. The end result of the project reflects their teamwork and critical thinking abilities. All students participate in an Apple Store learning experience!
