Launching the Leadership Institute at Hope Academy

Leadership is key any form of progress in society. URF has established a Leadership Institute in an effort to empower youth and adults with leadership skills that will enable them to become agents of positive change within their communities. The program is starting out at Hope Academy with general student population and some special sessions for student leaders. A leadership club is yet to be established through which students passionate about leadership development shall continue gaining skills and pass them on to younger students in primary schools and peers at other secondary schools in the region. Eventually, leadership training sessions shall be extended to adults to strengthen leadership in our communities. Two students, Natalie Campbell and Aaron Owens, from Marquette Univ. are heading up the program working alongside our Ugandan staff.
