Leadership via arts- based learning – How it works

Education is not just about going to school, it’s defined as being “an enlightening experience”. Our approach provides students of all ages spaces where they can  explore, create, innovate, fail, collaborate and become a life-long learner.  We include opportunities for our students to gain skills and character development in areas they may not normally consider. Cultivating self- reflection, awareness and a sense of personal responsibility was the focus of the “Superhero in me” project from our LEAD after school program featured in this video. Watch and see how this project brought out the best in these students and helped them become more aware of what is important to them, and how they can BE the hero they created.
