Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders, Today

For the past 17 years, the Institute for Civic Leadership (ICL) has been honing student passions and focusing them in the realm of social entrepreneurship and professional development. The ICL provides the skills, recognition, and funding necessary to make the connection between passion and civic engagement — between ideas and real-world success.

Inspiration is key to our success. Mentors — known as ICL Champions — share their own journeys to success with youth and motivate them to find their personal spark of genius. Meet our ICL Champions and check out our youth leadership conferences:

The ICL runs online courses, summer programs, and global workshops that transform student potential into action. We have designed an innovative learning model to nurture a wide range of academic, professional, and leadership skills.

The ICL curriculum yields innovative service projects and professional development endeavors that have positive impacts all around the world. We are proud of our young global leaders and their work on every continent and in over 40 countries.
