Who We Are

Young leaders are not raised up in crowds, but through life-on-life mentoring relationships.


Generation Y

Today, almost one-half the world’s population is 21 years old or younger. Ready or not, they will lead our world into the future. Members of Generation Y (born between 1984-2002) are hungry to change the world and we can help them.

Growing Leaders is a non-profit leadership training and development company. Through relevant and innovative events and resources, we equip the next generation and the parents, teachers, coaches and mentors who shape their lives.
