L.E.A.D. is proud to partner with the Public Education sector to empower one of the most influential groups on campus: student-athletes.

L.E.A.D. provides administrators, teachers and coaches with a positive approach to discipline. Access to L.E.A.D.’s programming is incentive based, so student-athletes have benchmarks they must meet to earn the opportunity to compete.

By the same token, Partner Schools must also demonstrate buy-in by meeting program requirements.

L.E.A.D. is a proud partner of Atlanta Public Schools (APS) and an 2019-2020 Washington Cluster Partner of The Year.

We have partnerships with the following APS Schools:

  • Middle Schools
    • Bunche
    • HJ Russell
    • Hollis Innovation Academy
    • John Lewis Invictus
    • Long
    • Young
  • High Schools
    • Douglass
    • Washington

L.E.A.D. and Effective Students have partnered to provide executive function coaching to students enrolled in the L.E.A.D. Ambassador program. As a part of L.E.A.D.’s Hopes & Dreams academic support component, executive function coaching equips students with skills that help them to plan and organize academic tasks. Using evidence-based methods that combine online lessons with one-on-one coaching, Ambassadors will learn and improve study skills, homework organization, planning skills, and become better students.

Created by Rachael Barron, The Effective Student™ Method helps students identify and eliminate everyday distractions that are especially pervasive in today’s virtual world. Simple organizational strategies for students include maintaining a quiet, tidy room, using headphones, utilizing a standing desk, and sitting on a bouncing ball—even listening to classical music. We work with each student to find winning strategies, building better study habits that last a lifetime.
