Our Approach to Leadership
We believe when students discover their potential and strengths they will make more positive life choices and an impact in our community.
We believe students need to have a deep, personal understanding of
their true identity in order to unlock their potential and shape their future.
We believe in the investment of mentorship and developing a personal connection with students because that is how to truly develop the unique giftings and story within them.
When students are given the opportunity to actively pursue their passions and dreams, the tangible experience ignites the reality that they can start living into their potential at a young age.
Our organization is recognized as having completed the Standards for Excellence course by the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. Our certification is valid from 2020-2025, and we can be found on the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits graduate page.
