Leadership Mission International has a laser focus: educate classes of 12-15 young women over the course of three years so that they will return to their communities as leaders, reinvest in their local economies, and initiate economic and ethical progress in Honduras. The young women who are selected have already navigated significant challenges to complete high school. The Leadership Center grants students’ full scholarships so that upon graduation they may start their own businesses, become teachers, enroll in higher education, or work with nonprofit organizations focused on development. The young women come determined, motivated, inspired, and grateful.


NEXT STEPS

Still interested? You should know that TLC does not have the capabilities or the infrastructure of a university in the developed world: quite the contrary. You will live somewhat off the grid (for example, sometimes the electricity will go out). For safety, the location is in a rural environment—far away from the big city. If you can go with the flow, improvise, and smile when things do not go as planned, you will help contribute to the positive atmosphere.
