Open to all aspiring leaders, from whatever background, at whatever grade. Developing you to live your potential.

We are looking for those who can demonstrate exemplary teamwork, positivity, respect for others and the ability to inspire those around them.

We will be asking you about what motivates you, how you respond to difficulties, how you seek out the unknown, and how you see our future.

We will ask those you work with to share their perspectives of you, and will want to know how you respond to those views.

We want to know how you feel about your life, present, past and future, and what you believe is your purpose and potential.
