Society cannot be changed until there is a new generation of youth who have new mindsets, values, and leadership.

As part of the strategy to prepare young people to lead change, the Leadership and Development Studies (LADS) curriculum was developed. The multinational team that developed LADS included government, business and professional leaders, and educational experts. LADS is a 12-lesson program that builds leaders on 3Cs: Character, Competence, and Connection.

The International Leadership Foundation partners with educational institutions, youth clubs, and organizations to deliver these programs aimed at building young, competent leaders of integrity who bring holistic change to their communities and nations.
