This leadership academy is a hybrid model between self-paced and cohort.

A cohort is a group of students working together through the same academic curriculum.

Compared to a proceed-at-your-own-pace model, a cohort invites student participation, fosters creativity, builds leadership skills, generates a sense of community.  This format proceeds at a predetermined pace.

Perfect option for current officers, future-potentials, new officers, mid-level chiefs and aspiring leaders.  There is structure and flexibility that works with your busy schedules.
