iLEAP is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to inspire and renew social leaders and global citizens through integrated leadership programs that ignite hope and transformation in the world. We conduct programs in Seattle, Washington and collaborate with social leaders throughout Asia, Africa, and Latin America to build regional networks of change leaders who are connected through a values-based approach to leadership and committed to building strong global partnerships for social change.
Our programs are all centered around learning themes of social innovation and leadership and balance personal inquiry and reflection with social action and collaboration. Each program integrates elements of formal classroom trainings, applied learning through site visits to local social businesses and nonprofit organizations and job shadowing/internship placements, and public outreach and discussion. Our emphasis on relationship building and hands-on learning connects our participants with influential leaders and innovative organizations from a wide range of sectors--including, global health, social media, environmental conservation, youth leadership, sustainable agriculture, human rights, technology, and education.
iLEAP programs are all designed to inspire personal growth, deepen a sense of vocation, spark creativity, advance professional development, and lead to social transformation. Each curricula is steeped in cross-cultural, adult learning principles and we challenge participants to learn and grow with head, heart, and hands. Through this integrated process, our graduates emerge with the practical skills, critical thinking, and global community of support necessary to create sustainable social change in the world.
