Leadership Workshops

SAA’s Leadership Workshops Prepares Students for Trips, College and Beyond

Due to the Pandemic, SAA expanded our programs to include a series of virtual Leadership Workshops.  SAA has received national attention over the years for its inspiring hands-on experiences. We are continuing to build upon our success through this impactful Workshop Series.  Our unique methodology brings history to life while Global Leaders visit SAA’s virtual classroom.  These workshops will positively impact high school students while enhancing their knowledge and adding value to their resume for Colleges/Universities.

History Brought to Life

What makes SAA’s leadership workshops unique? We have top global experts involved as we tackle the important subjects of Human Rights, Civil Rights, Diversity, and the Justice System. What makes SAA truly unique is how we bring history to life as our students learn directly from people who have lived through historical moments that have helped define our globe. The students may hear from a Holocaust survivor, a member of the Civil Rights Movement, a Rwandan Genocide survivor, etc.

This is your chance to meet ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things.  Our series of workshops will empower you and challenge you.  Sign up Today!
