Youth Diversity Leadership Certification Program

Updated: 6 days ago

If you’re looking for a way to equip your child with the right tools to grow themselves into strong leaders who are ready for the world of tomorrow, then you’ve come to the right place.

What does this program entail? Great question.

This is an intensive 6 month program split into two semesters - Spring semester will be February to April, and Fall semester will be September to November.

Each semester consists of three projects focused on cultural intelligence and leadership. Each student is expected to research the subject and present it at the end of the three month period. While they research their topics, we will be focusing on public speaking and presentation skills so they can grow their confidence and speak comfortably in front of others. After they successfully complete both the semesters, each child will be awarded with an opportunity.


Opportunities available:

1. Internship with a company

2. Diversity and Inclusion research project with schools/companies

3. Host an interview with corporate leaders on the subject of Diversity and Inclusion for Inside the Diverse Mind (a diversity talk show)

Program curriculum

Project 1 - Evaluate and understand your own strengths and weaknesses as a presenter. Learn how culture plays a role in these concepts.


  • Verbal/non-verbal communication

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Connections

  • Distractions

Project 2 - Hard (coercion) Power Vs. Soft (Attract) Power

How do countries use soft power to attract other countries and people towards their value and culture? Look into the way cultures function and compare/contrast practices of both coercive and attractive power.

Project 3 - Navigating Across Different Cultures

Culture Clash - Case study and presentation of events where behaviors and outcome has been different from what was expected

Things to consider:

  • Cultural beliefs

  • Values

  • Attitudes and Behaviors

Project 4 - Culture and Technological Revolution

Study the impact of technology on culture – case study

Project 5 - Inclusive Leadership

Research what it means to be an inclusive leader? Imagine a workplace environment when you land a job in the future. What should the professional environment of the future have for it to be considered “inclusive?”

  • Visible commitments

  • Awareness

  • Cultural intelligence (CQ)

Project 6 - Curiosity, Confident Communication and Empowerment

Altering your behavior does not mean you are losing yourself. How can we alter our behavior to empower ourselves and our surroundings?

Things to consider:

  • Communication in a world where everything is virtual

  • Key to effective listening skills

  • Resilient leadership

These are a few examples of the kinds of projects that I assign to each individual child, based on their interests. If any of these speak to you, and you wish to enroll your child in this program please sign up through this link here.
