About Leaders by Choice

The mission of the Leaders By Choice - LBC is to provide youth with a safe, caring, and inspiring environment that offers both leadership and performing arts skills. Many of today's youth struggle with low self-esteem, self-acceptance, peer pressure, and limited communication skills.

We challenge students to learn how to effectively communicate while collaborating both on the stage and within the entire learning community. Our purpose is multifaceted. We aim to develop students' theater skills as well as their leadership skills, cultivating the artist and activist in each child. We also aim to guide each student toward responsible self-management of their own behavior as they engage in richly motivating and challenging leadership experiences.
