The iLead curriculum is made up of values-based roundtables designed by Dr. John C. Maxwell to allow the next generation of leaders to develop their values and leadership skills. John Maxwell recognized that if we could help students learn and apply these same concepts, we would be able to provide a foundation that could set them, and their country, up for meaningful and sustainable success. iLead was birthed out of this belief. For effective delivery, a value or leadership characteristic is paired with an image to help make the concept memorable.
iLead has been implemented in countries where the John Maxwell Leadership Foundation has partnered with the streams of influence in an all-out country transformation effort! JMLF launched its transformational work in Guatemala in 2013 and the roundtables were so incredibly effective with adults that John Maxwell knew he needed to provide something similar for the youth. There are over 485,00 middle school students in Guatemala going through the iLead curriculum as a part of their school day, and over 29,000 in Paraguay. The results have been so impressive that the Minister of Education in Paraguay has asked to have iLead made a part of the school year for ALL Middle school students in 2020. That means another 500,000 students will be learning about and practicing leadership and values. Parents and teachers are taking notice as students are recognizing they have opportunities to lead, starting with leading themselves.
