My involvement in the community developed as I presided over two clubs at my high school and was elected to become Chairwoman of a county-wide student organization. Not only was I known as a strong leader, but also my relationships with my family and friends grew stronger. The lessons and skills that I learned from BoldLeaders has truly influenced my everyday life-a true testament to the impact of this program."
What parents say when we asked "What difference did participating with BoldLeaders make for your son or daughter?" "She is a different person. I believe her outlook and experience will last a lifetime and possibly move her toward foreign service. She was more willing to share difficult situations with us and also knowing she has a new support group. I can't say enough about what the whole package meant to us. It's the best thing that molded her way of life." "She left with a great level of confidence, a desire to do more with causes she is passionate about and opened new interests for degree programs when applying to colleges this fall."

The unique design of the Bold Leaders program utilizes a relational connection between mentors and youth that allows participants to lead the way through their own self-exploration in a supportive environment that challenges their preconceptions and opens them to greater possibility. If youth on both a local and global level were equipped with this type of leadership development, they would be able to affect the type of progress in their own lives and in our world that would truly make a difference."
Boldleaders brought a powerful discussion to my team of young people focused on getting back to the most fundamental human resources we all possess. The conversation challenged their view of themselves and the world in a way that opened up new possibilities for their lives. In many ways, this conversation is where everything must begin because it is the place from where true transformation can happen. I am very grateful to the Boldleaders team for bringing their expertise to my students!"
There is no doubt in my mind that the work of the BoldLeaders, is relevant and pertinent to lives of the young people they interact with, my only wish is that more people can get to experience what I have and continue to experience on a daily basis."
BoldLeaders is effective at working with students and adults. They navigated both relationships effectively because it is evident their organization is comprised of individuals that are capable, prepared, engaged, and who care about our students, our schools, and our communities. I am happy to recommend them for future work with Denver Public Schools."
...and intertwined challenges of the 21st century, I see BoldLeaders as one of the best programs I know of to prepare people to innovate collaborative solutions while engaging diverse, often rival perspectives."
...of community training organizations over the past 10 years and can say that the BoldLeaders training curriculum, without a doubt, is the most advanced and cutting-edge leadership program that I have experienced. The BoldLeaders training material is simple and accessible; in and of itself, the content is a game-changer for individuals and organizations that desire shift. Yet, it is the advanced facilitation techniques and style of the BoldLeaders staff that supports a widespread transformation for participants. They are gifted facilitators who have mastered how to guide any demographic into new explorations of what it means to be a "leader." Working alongside these three, I never ended a day without a core shift in my own perspective or
The change in behavior and attitudes our young people experienced through the program did not stem from text book knowledge rhetoric, rather it came from a place of being real with youth; allowing them to cry, to be angry, to laugh, to work hard and play hard, to embrace each other, to find a way to get a task done and to appreciate themselves for who they are. BoldLeaders did not just provide information; they provided the platforms for the knowledge to come alive."
They are exceptional facilitators - BoldLeaders themselves - and it is a delight and privilege to watch them work with youth. Their style is very interactive and they work with our young people in a way that keeps the teens engaged and empowered. BoldLeaders also works with our organization in curriculum development and we consult with them regularly on how to develop lessons that will make the biggest impact with our teens. They have written key parts of our training manual. They have designed highly successful trainings for our mentors. They have led one day transformational workshops for us with over 100 high school students at a time. Further, we consult with them on leadership training and
