Our Flagship Program for At-Risk Youth in Small Town Arkansas.
We help kids from high-risk small-town communities in Arkansas. Based on a highly selective process and combining arts, life lessons, and personal development, Leadership Academy helps them become well-rounded, self-assured individuals.
When these children are confronted by drugs, when they are confronted by issues that could make them choose teen suicide, when confronted with the bullying of any kind, Leadership Academy kids are guided to choose not to participate, because they have the strength, the education, and the support to make the right decisions.
Long-term Personal Development.
This long-term program continues to follow them past graduation, changing communities over time through these children. We believe Leadership Academy will help to prevent incarceration, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, depression, and isolation, and stop the cycle of generational learned habits and behaviors.
They also do school tours with interactive enactments to help teaching lessons on such things as anti- bullying, meaningful discussions, and promoting unity.
