After the EnVision Leadership program and camp, the students were infused with a newfound understanding of and passion for facilitating positive change within our community. The EnVision team's ability to relate and connect to the students allowed all of our participants to feel comfortable expressing themselves in an environment of support and trust. After the leadership camp, word spread so quickly about our high school service club and nearly 200 students showed up for our first meeting of the school year!

An innovative leadership development program that empowers a diverse team of high school students with leadership skills, mentorship, an internship opportunity, and resources to lead action projects in the community.
Leadership in Action
Leadership in Action is a student-driven program designed to empower participants as community organizers and leaders. EnVision Leadership has designed a two or three-day leadership-training program that covers the following leadership competencies: Appreciating Diversity, Self-awareness, Servant Leadership, Communication, Ethics and Character, and Leading Change.
EnVision Leadership will provide leadership coaches, curricula, and resources to assist groups in implementing this program. Leadership in Action provides an excellent opportunity to involve students that do not serve in “official” leadership positions, or schools that are focused on cultivating stronger peer-relationships. This program can complement an existing program and be tailored to suit specific leadership competencies that coordinators and educators are interested in developing in participants.
In most Leadership in Action programs, participants will work collaboratively to design and implement a Leadership in Action project following the leadership training. Past programs and events planned by Leadership in Action participants have included: Service Events, Speakers Series, Neighborhood Revitalization Projects, Leadership Camps, and Community Conferences.
Leadership Coach Training
Leadership Coach training is for students, parents, teachers, educators, and volunteers who want to become mentors and resources for youth leadership development. In order to make leadership a part of every student’s education it is critical for all members of communities to encourage students to develop their leadership ability and apply their skills in a variety of settings. Most importantly, effective coaches model the leadership values that they want to instill in students.
We train leadership coaches to serve as experience facilitators that are capable of implementing our leadership curricula in a variety of settings including: summer programs, school-based programs, at home, on teams, and in the community.
EnVision Leadership has developed a three-day inclusive community camp for middle school students. High school students are trained as leadership coaches that are involved in the coordination and facilitation of the camp. Camp participants and coaches work together to learn about leadership through fun games, team challenges, an extensive leadership curricula, and community action projects.
EnVision Leadership can also work with you to enhance an existing camp or student program with additional leadership education curricula that is tailored to the emotional and developmental needs of participants.
Leadership for Life
EnVision Leadership collaborated with Delta Gamma in 2003-2004 to design Leadership for Life, a leadership development program designed for all members of Delta Gamma. The comprehensive program is an ethics-based development experience that was designed for collegians to members celebrating 50, 60, even 70 years of membership!
