 Show up & be seen, be brave & take risks, use your voice to influence & build relationships.

Leadership isn’t just a high-level position or something you do only at work, it’s actually a way of showing up and using your influence to make the world a better place. 

In this program you’ll…

•  Learn how to access your courage & own your power

•  Learn how to embrace the authentic leader in you

•  Improve how you show up in all areas of life

•  How to navigate difficult personalities & situations

•  Plus cultivate more meaningful relationships. 

At the end of the camp you’ll walk away with real courage tools so that you’ll be better equipped to ask for what you need, share your ideas and thoughts, own your story, take (healthy) risks, and set clear boundaries.

Activities include: journaling, art, games, and more. 

A leadership course like no other, you’ll walk away with skills that will help you be more effective in all that you do, plus take home a BOLD Leadership Discovery Book that you can refer to for years to come.

Student Feedback

I had an absolutely amazing experience during the Leadership program. I learned about the differences between empathy and sympathy, vulnerability, receiving and giving feedback, authenticity, risk taking, and more. It gave me a totally new insight on how I looked at certain things, like doing new things or daring to be brave. Everyone was really supportive in the group too. We also did activities, like art projects, stories, songs, and short skits. I had a great time and will definitely consider returning to the course next year.

7th Grade Student

I really liked this class because no one was in the corner and it was fun to get to know everyone in the class. One thing i really liked was that this class was not just listen and learn, it was listen learn, read, write, sing, and play. It was not like what i thought it would be, it was helpful and inspiring. i really liked this class and i would change nothing about it and maybe i can do this again, because it was a good experience.                                             

9th Grade Student

My experience in the class has been an insightful and impactful adventure. I have learned how to show up, be seen, and live brave, and am excited to practice my new learnings today and in the future. I am extremely grateful that I had the chance to partake in this program, and am ready to live by my core values and become my greatest self. I would like to thank Ms. Franz for giving me the chance to step up, be courageous, and mature into a skilled leader. Thank you!
