Who We Are

Founded in 2003 by Dr. Tim Elmore, Growing Leaders is a global nonprofit that encourages and equips young adults to take on real-life opportunities and challenges in the classroom, in their careers, and in the community.

We do this by partnering with organizations like yours to teach practical life and leadership skills using real stories, intriguing images, and engaging experiences that are relatable and memorable.

Our process and resources are grounded in research and a unique understanding of the emerging generations, and recognize that leading others at any level begins with learning how to lead yourself.

What We Provide

Growing Leaders offers events, tools, and comprehensive programs that promote healthy character and leadership development in the next generation. We also offer a variety of resources for the parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors who shape their lives.

In an effort to live out our mission, we’ve built a multi-generational team with a shared love for leading the emerging generations.
