High School Leadership Curriculum

Habitudes curriculum can radically change not only individual students, but your school's overall culture.

Helping Students Develop Leadership Skills


Resilience, initiative, commitment, and emotional security are just some of the necessary leadership skills students need to succeed both in and out of school. Unfortunately, many students aren't developing them today. What if there was a straightforward way to teach students these essential leadership skills? That's why we designed one of the Habitudes courses - Habitudes for Self-Leadership: The Art of Leading Yourself - to be used as a leadership curriculum for today's students.

Practical Lesson Plans

We believe all students have the capacity to become authentic leaders and rise to the challenges the emerging generation will face. A great place to start developing these critical leadership skills is within middle and high school students already exhibiting an interest in leadership, like those in student government, student ambassadors, and other leadership clubs.

Habitudes isn’t just another high school leadership program. Grounded in extensive research, our courses utilize language, images and stories specifically designed to resonate with today's emerging generation, teaching life skills and leadership characteristics in a fresh, engaging way.
