Youth Diversity Leadership Certification Program

Updated: Aug 17, 2020

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 Emotional, Social and Cultural 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 also be focusing on public speaking and presentation skills so they can grow their confidence and speak comfortably in front of others.


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

2. Present one of the 6 projects at the annual speech competition

3. Diversity Youth Leaders certification

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

Things to consider:

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.
