Student Leadership Development
Lead2Feed Student Leadership Program
The Lead2Feed Student Leadership Program is the nation’s leading and fastest growing free service learning program, attracting more than a million students in over 5,000 schools and clubs across all 50 states. Lead2Feed is where leadership and service learning intersect for measurable results. Aligned to standards for College and Career Readiness and 21st Century Skills, Lead2Feed is making a huge difference in participants’ lives and the programs they create.
Lead2Feed has united students and created teams around a common goal to address needs within their communities. Throughout this leadership program, students learn and practice leadership skills adapted from Lift a Life Foundation founder David Novak’s book, Taking People With You. The Only Way to Make Big Thing Happen. Each year, student teams compete for a chance to win over $25,000 in prize money grants for their public non-profit community partner AND up to $20,000 in technology products for their school.
The Lead2Feed curriculum provides opportunities for high levels of student engagement through collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, reflection and creativity. While the focus of the student projects will be combating a community need, the enduring value of this program for students will be their individual development as leaders.
Lift a Life Foundation Director Ashley Butler explains: “We believe the earlier we can develop leaders in our schools, the stronger it will make our country and individual success in students! “
Lead2Feed is completely free and provided to schools and clubs across the country through grants from the Lift a Life Foundation and the Yum! Brands Foundation with assistance from the Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning.
