Youth Leadership Curriculum

Today's generation of youth is one of the largest in history, larger than the Baby Boomer generation. At Growing Leaders, we believe everyone has leadership potential, because leadership influence. Our team has developed Habitudes®, a youth leadership curriculum that helps students become both leaders of themselves and of others.

Specifically designed for today's youth, they are a fun, creative and engaging way for the next generation to learn and practice leadership. Habitudes teaches timeless character and leadership principles through  the power of an image, a conversation and an experience.
