Creating Enriching Experiences Beyond the Classroom


Through our Student Learning Programs, Student Leadership & Learning partners with K-12 schools and universities worldwide to deliver purposeful learning experiences. Learning is most impactful when connected to real-world issues, meaningful experiences, and a biblical worldview. Our programs, designed to spark curiosity, foster creativity, and inspire students to make a difference in their communities, go beyond the traditional classroom. They offer transformative experiences that connect learning with a biblical worldview.

Student Leadership & Learning programs and challenges are offered in many different formats.  Please refer to each program for specific information.
