WHAT IS THE BELIEVE LEADERSHIP COURSE?

The Believe Leadership Course (BLC) is a student-run extracurricular program within the Believe Initiative. The BLC works towards teaching important leadership, entrepreneurship and mental wellness skills to high school students.

Schools create their own BLC Chapter, which is led by a student Chapter Head volunteer. The course can be run virtually, or in-person, and consists of 6 sessions that guide members through the development of their own Passion Projects.  The course culminates with students presenting their projects at a Chapter Inspiration Fair!
