Leadership Workshops

We empower youth in high schools where professionals deliver workshops in soft skills for kids aged 12 to 18 so they become change makers in their community.

Life Academy host conferences about soft skills and social impact where attendees are called to Live a healthier, wealthier, more fulfilling, passionate and purposeful life – whether that means achieving in business, reigniting your relationship or discovering who you really are and how you will impact other`s people lifes.
