“Now, more than ever, the world is in need of a new generation of compassionate, strong, biblically-based leaders.”
After a four-year study spanning more than 150,000 teens in 44 nations, OneHope found that most teens did not understand the importance of developing strong leadership skills. In response, they partnered with John Maxwell’s organization, EQUIP, to create Lead Today, a program that fills this gap by guiding teens through lessons on biblical servant leadership, character strength, and practical application of leadership skills.
While many teens in Ghana perceive leadership as position, abuse of power, bribery, and corruption, Ghanaian students who completed Lead Today in 2016 showed significant growth in their understanding of true, biblical leadership. An overwhelming 92% percent of students reported their own personal growth as leaders through participation in the program. Teachers also recognized growth in their students and reported that they would recommend the program to other leaders and teachers.
