High school students desire an outlet to learn and lead. Most programs that transfer information with speakers, seminars, or books offer short-term motivation but long-term frustration without an outlet for action. Chick-fil-A Leader Academy engages students in monthly Leader Labs with a focus on important leadership skills that they will use to create student-led Community Impact Projects.
30 selected students participate in monthly Leader Labs using unique CURRICULUM TECHNOLOGY with a faculty leader to gain insight and principles, then involve hundreds in their school and IMPACT THOUSANDS in their community!
Teachers engage students in highly INTERACTIVE CURRICULUM requiring little planning and MINIMUM EFFORT, which takes students on a journey leading to their leadership growth and MAXIMUM RESULTS.
The program is fully-funded through generous sponsorships from local Chick-fil-A Operators, Chick-fil-A, Inc. and Coca-Cola to offset the annual $4,000 per school tuition.
We engage students where they are with what interests them. Through a combination of inspiring storytelling and technology, we create compelling ways for students to re-imagine leadership and what is possible.
We expose students to new and unique ideas and insights. Positive stories of impact are all around us. We bring these stories to light through monthly Leader Labs that highlight inspirational and informational ways to make a difference.
We equip students with tangible tools for their leadership journey. Ideas demand action and we know our students have the ability to change the world. Our approach helps put students' ideas into practice to positively impact their local communities.
