Empowering Teens with Leadership

At ELE, our vision is to give impressionable youth the confidence that comes with a better understanding of their emotions, a strong foundation of self-development, and the tools for successful communications, relationships, and leadership. The Leadership for the Teen Spirit program, part of our Leadership for the Human Spirit series, is geared specifically toward young adults, providing them with tools and strategies for personal growth, and helping them develop into the enlightened leaders of the future. 

Our first step towards helping the youth in our own community was to launch the Leadership for the Teen Spirit program in Austin, Texas. This opened the door for teens to understand how emotions fit into a pathway to personal and professional success — a key for youth who are at a critical juncture in their maturity. Our vision is to replicate this conference in 20 cities by 2020, expanding our reach to teens across the country.

Teen Conferences

Today's young people grow up in a hyper-competitive world with enormous demands to excel in school, build impressive resumes -even before they can legally get a job - gain admission to great colleges, and move into lucrative professional careers.

This comes at a huge emotional cost ranging from mental health issues, higher suicide rates, substance abuse and increased bullying. To help teens keep themselves centered and on the right path, our programs teach students lifelong strategies and highlight their innate strengths.

Join Us As We Develop Future Leaders

Leadership for the Teen Spirit goes beyond a single event. Our annual conferences help them build the skills they'll need to succeed... but we can’t do it alone. Our professional programs help to support our teen programs. Through business sponsorships, a percentage of a company’s investment in their professional development goes to support Teen Spirit programs. It’s our way of giving back to our communities and our world as a whole. Teen Leadership College

Leadership for the Teen Spirit

 "What a great tool for helping our teenagers get through trouble times. Your demonstrations of how to get back to center were well received and I think they will use them. Encouraging them to think and center so that they can take control of themselves and take positive action was fantastic. I hope that this message will reach more of our teens." - Brenda H., Social Worker
