Arborlea Leadership Program for High School & Beyond (Alpha)

High School is about discovering your talents, honing your study skills and developing your character.  ​Through our seminars, discussions, individual mentoring, and hands-on activities, we help young women develop the skills and outlook necessary to be effective in college and later on as a mother, professional, and citizen.  


Seminars are designed to help students learn to think deeply, assess important values in life, and develop key leadership skills. They offer participants a rich view of their mission and potential, enabling them to acquire a deeper sense of belonging within their community, a broad cultural background and an understanding of the working world.  


Seminars are held the first Saturday of the month from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

While ideas can be inspiring and uplifting, life is played out in the personal and in the particular.  As a leadership program, Alpha seeks to engage each student where she is in life; for this reason, mentoring is the most important aspect of the program.  With her mentor, each student applies what she learned during the monthly sessions to her own circumstances, formulating goals and navigating the challenges she encounters.


Mentors are carefully vetted professional women and college students.

"I read a proverb very popular in some countries:

'God owns the world, but he rents it out to the brave,'


and it made me think...

What are you waiting for?"
