So much of student training is focused on the organization and not the student leaders themselves. FLY does exactly the opposite: it focuses on the individual leader and taps into their power of personal vision. Once you are equipped to lead yourself, you will be empowered to lead organizations and take yourself to astounding new heights.


Don't settle for simply hoping you hit the ground running, empower yourself to FLY!
