Invitation to Make Reservation to Train Your Students

Student leaders on campus exert enormous influence on the student population. Also, many student leaders on campus come out to become leaders in the larger society, including the political space.

at Foundation for Leadership & Education Development, we understand this fact. We also recognize the need to give student leaders definite leadership training using standardized training modules to build their capacity to lead well and support school authorities to collaboratively administer the school.
