What Is iLead?

iLead is John Maxwell’s values-based leadership development designed specifically for students. This program combines John’s proven content with a peer-to-peer process. Students practice leadership as they are learning it.


Why iLead?

Is the climate in your school struggling? Do students need help finding their voice or connecting with one another? Do you simply want a better future for your youth? iLead’s peer-to-peer process provides an environment for students to develop authentic relationships. The program helps youth be intentional in learning and living good leadership values.


I’m a Teacher/Parent/Youth Leader. How Do I Use iLead?

iLead works best in small groups of 4-6 students, preferably once a week, during a course. It is unique, being peer-to-peer. Registering adults act as a sponsor (See Sponsor Guide under Resources). Sponsors train students to be facilitators (See Student Facilitator Guide under Resources). Content is accessed for FREE digitally (after registration) or printed at your own cost. Students submit a pre and post assessment, and the sponsor is asked to submit attendance. The assessments and attendance records help iLead program developers. They track the effectiveness of the program. They also help with future improvements.



iLead is a powerful resource for cultivating leadership excellence among today's youth. By harnessing John Maxwell's timeless wisdom and fostering peer-to-peer engagement, iLead empowers students to embody and enact positive change within their communities. Whether you're a teacher, parent, or youth leader, embracing iLead is a testament to your commitment to nurturing the next generation of leaders. Take the first step today by registering and immersing yourself in the transformative journey of iLead. Let's unlock the potential of our young leaders and ignite a ripple effect of impactful change.
