What We Do
PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES. SETTING GOALS. OVERCOMING OBSTACLES. BUILDING CHARACTER. CHANGING LIVES.
Mission and Vision
Letting Everyone Achieve Dreams (LEAD) prepares underserved middle school students for leadership and success in high school and beyond.
We aspire to eliminate the 9th grade dropout rate by helping middle school students build a solid a foundation to achieve their goals.
Character Development Program
We inspire vision, practice empathy, and demonstrate tenacity.
Social Emotional Learning (SEL) allows students to cope with feelings, resolve conflicts, and set goals.
SEL classes are presented weekly at our partner schools.
Summer enrichment provides interactive learning and access to new adventures while exploring our local and greater communities.
Through local partnerships, small groups of students are paired with mentors to continue to develop communication skills, strong relationships, and strong goals.
Community engagement prepares students to lead, drive change, and give back.
TENACITY. DETERMINATION. PERSEVERANCE.
LEADers experience wilderness adventures during the summer months. Journeys apply the character growth lessons beyond the classroom and help drive further impact.
OUR CAPSTONE EXPERIENCE
Meaningful growth happens with place-based learning in the Grand Tetons. This experience inspires student engagement and encourages leadership.
TEXAS SUMMER CAMP
LEADers grow in confidence, try new activities, create shared experiences, and apply LEAD lessons outdoors.
