COVID-19 Resources

We are mindful that the world and the everyday look different for all of us as we deal with the COVID-19 impact. What matters most is the health and safety of everyone in your school and community. We all see people stepping up in this crisis to show that leadership goes beyond walls and school buildings.

It’s in our love for our communities that leadership becomes realized. We need to show the world our students in this light, not as young people awaiting news and the next announcement in this crisis, but as strong emerging leaders who jump in and help where needed.

Thank you, to both you and your students, for your continued leadership in these unprecedented times.

What do you want to hear from us? If you have specific topics and themes that you would like our program team to address in the coming weeks, please share with us here: https://forms.gle/bt9atKxyqykbXZet6
