Innovative SEL and Leadership Skill Building

High school offers student the opportunity to cultivate their personal independence, ambitions, opinions, beliefs, and how they see the world around them.  For some students, this is an exciting time of exploration and growth.  However, many students struggle to feel a sense of belonging, purpose, and direction in their life.  They may be grappling with trauma, housing instability, learning differences, the effects and impacts of inequity, and more.  School may simply not be their “thing.”

For all of these students, it has never been more critical that they leave school strong in the social emotional and interpersonal skills – the core skills – that they will need to take the next step down their career or academic path.

LeaderU Can Help


LeaderU exists to close the skills gap by developing principle-centered leaders with essential career skills.

Rather than focus directly on the leadership skills and techniques that need to be improved, it is more effective to start by helping students reflect on their own character and paradigms.  In this process, they identify their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the root cause for the actions they take. LeaderU instructors will help students adopt this same See-Do-Get model in preparing them to become a principle-centered leaders in order to achieve lasting results.  The courses are self-paced and flexible, eliminating schedule conflicts with other classes, extracurriculars, or jobs.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

The principles outlined in the 7 Habits are deeply rooted in the character ethic of personal development and is founded on three stages of maturity: Dependence, Independence, and Interdependence. During this course students will not only learn foundational principles of personal improvement, but also gain a deeper appreciation for true collaboration and synergy with others.
