Leadership4Kids Our Values

Our Values - L I G H T

Love, Inclusion, Gratitude, Humility, and Trust - these are the values we live and breathe by, day in and day out. They have served as the guiding principle for all decisions, actions and behavior since we began.

Authentic Leadership Development through Self-Discovery


"My 4th graders have been using your leadership journals this year.  We've been in and out of school periodically due to the pandemic, but when we are together we have made it part of classroom routine.  I have found that my kids are way more insightful than I imagined. The journals have allowed us to have some meaningful conversation in the classroom and really dig deep into the definition of gratitude.  It was needed more now than ever and I am truly appreciative." -- Tiffany Cooney, 4th Grade Teacher, Desert Mountain Elementary

At Leadership4Kids, we design and create kid-friendly journals to inspire and empower kids through self-discovery. I AM A LEADER is our #1 best-selling leadership journal for kids (ages 8 - 12), which are trusted and used by many school districts and non-profit youth organizations to support their SEL programs.
