Founder's Welcome

When I was a kid I loved learning, going to summer camp, exploring and having fun.  I think all kids should have "beyond school" experiences that allow them to develop who they are and their gifts and talents.  This is where they get to explore, use their creativity and build lasting friendships.  


Our Vision is to be an educational resource that partners with school, churches and community groups to train & equip young leaders to make an Impact, take the right Action and achieve Mastery.​

All of our programs are based on The I AM Way Leadership Development Model and our version of STEM, Entrepreneurship and the Arts.  I AM… is an acronym for Impact, Action & Mastery, which summarizes our philosophy that knowing who you are, your purpose, vision and talents are the fuels that empower success.


Thank you for allowing us to help you to empower you and your child to reach their full potential!
