There is this wonderful piece of research where Clemson University found while studying our program and its effectiveness: that when student leaders were "at the table" adult effectiveness in improving their schools and in following through with implementation of their interventions went up!
Kids brought out the best in the adults according to an independent study by the National Dropout Prevention center! It seems like an important "verification" of the "beliefs" we hold about the power of kids to change the world.
Here's a little more about the Clemson's findings!
Have a great week,
