We empower schools to empower students

Student Leadership: What, Why and How?


The very goal of education is to turn children into self-directed adults who will be able to take on the challenges of tomorrow. By encouraging and supporting participatory leadership, we empower our students to play a truly active role in their own education.


Promoting student leadership benefits both students and their schools. It helps students acquire invaluable real-life skills and strengthens their school’s sense of community, all while enriching its leadership processes.


There is a great variety of ways in which schools can involve students in the structures and decisions that shape their education. Working together, we will design adapted solutions fitting your school’s unique context.

“Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”

U.S. President John F. Kennedy
