“We needed a way to get right to the heart of teaching leadership to our students in an effective way, where it wouldn’t be just another lecture.  The Youth Leadership Assessment engages students more effectively because the students really enjoy assessing leadership in themselves and taking stock of their own leadership behaviors.    We love administering this tool and truly enjoy the deep discussions and growth we see from our students when we use it.”        

-Sandy Kirkpatrick,  High School  Teacher


“As a non-profit working with youth we needed some effective measures of program efficacy.  The Youth Leadership Assessment is an effective tool for us to measure on the front and back end of our program.  Our semester- long curriculum aims for individual growth and we continually have to prove the effectiveness of our programs to donors and the public who support us.  The Youth Leadership Assessment is a great tool that we depend on.”    

-Bobby Caldwell, Leadership 2000
