Developing personal leadership is a critical component in bringing today’s youth into society and the workforce as healthy, productive contributors. Rising Stars’ proven process instills these behaviors along with additional return on investment through prevention and reduction of risk behavior.

The purpose of this performance model is three-fold.

"This program is teaching us to be leaders and to communicate with our school peers as well as adults. These skills will help us to become better leaders in the school and community. This leadership class will give me the skills to assist my underclassmen in their high school activities dealing with pressures."

"This Leadership Program has helped me get through many problems and ... control my anger. This program was very educational, there were high expectations, and it made you take a close look at yourself. As for me, there were things that I used to do that I have learned to change ... for example, to never get frustrated with the goals I am trying to achieve and to keep a positive head no matter what."
