Logic and Leadership Academy @ ASU
This leadership course isn’t just about preparing students to go to college, it’s about teaching students how to be successful, happy, and productive wherever they go. When students enjoy what they are doing, they excel in college, in the workplace, and in all aspects of life. The Leadership Society of Arizona (LSA) has created a fun leadership program based on 25 years of professional development research conducted at ASU (2,000+ tests valued at $6.6B). The program teaches students how to use natural laws and logical thinking skills to learn ten times faster, manage their stress, and solve problems by utilizing expertise from their parents and other mentors. LSA has worked with over 1,200 students with a 96% satisfaction rating. As a result, 75% feel less stressed and 64% feel more confident about their futures.
Be A Leader Institute – High School
Be A Leader Institute – High School (BLIH) is a program for high school students that provide monthly workshops to help them build a college-going mentality and teach them critical academic test taking skills that are necessary to become prepared for college requirements including entrance exams. The Be A Leader Foundation’s (BALF) goal is to increase their interest in and awareness of college by teaching a university focused curriculum. BALF will continue to work directly with these individuals to develop a network of college bound students through each of the campus Be A Leader Clubs. BLIH’s primary goal is to get high school students college bound, focused and prepared. We will achieve this goal by providing a positive learning environment and a college-focused mentality for each participant to develop their educational 4 plus 4 plan. Our primary objective is to continue to prepare college bound students through active participation in our monthly BLIH workshops and Be A Leader High School Clubs including the support by our Be A Leader Parent Club. BLIH welcomes all high school students to attend our monthly program workshops without the need to apply to the program.
