The goal of the Be2Live Student Leadership Academy is to equip students with resources that will allow them to thoughtfully assess who they are, critically evaluate the world’s greatest needs, and effectively lead others to make a vital difference in their schools, communities, & world.

The focus of the 2016 – 2017 Student Leadership Academy will be to help students discover who they are as individuals and as leaders so they can better serve their peers, schools, and communities.

Students will create a leadership profile by completing personal development exercises such as the Enneagram and StrengthsFinder 2.0 while diving into social injustices in our world and participating in service projects at their schools and the North Bay area.


Open to high school students who have attended at least one Mexico trip and have a desire to learn and develop their personal leadership skills through activities that align with the focus of Be2Live.  Students must be willing to allow themselves to be stretched personally and be able to commit to the meeting schedule.
