Welcome to Extreme Teen Leaders, Inc.
Extreme Teen Leaders
Give your teen critical social and emotional skills to gain an awareness of when they are in their own way and empower them with transformational leadership distinctions to overcome any life challenge.
WHY ENROLL YOUR TEEN INTO XTL360 TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM?
XTL360 is a social and emotional learning (SEL) program that is designed to complement traditional academic curriculum based learning. After over 100 years of academic learning, not much has changed with the way we educate our youth. With over 40+ years of research, studies have shown that students that participate in SEL programs have higher scores on tests and are able to successfully navigate life's challenges. Our program is aligned with the 5 Core Competencies of SEL.
Making social and emotional skills part of the learning equation will help student leaders succeed in school and life. With social and emotional skills, student leaders learn to manage emotions, build positive relationships, and navigate social environments. When we focus on helping to develop these skills and are student leaders are better prepared for the world and able to fulfill their potential.
Imagine 20 years from now having an open and connected relationship with your “all grown up” teen. What would that be like? Being able to pour in wisdom and see the results of all that you have sacrificed to ensure their success. I can tell you, it is an amazing feeling. I look at my kids today and am in awe. They are “all grown up” living life independently. I feel such relief, and humility knowing that I am blessed to have such great relationships with all five of my kids. I am able to pour into them and connect with them on a deeper level than ever before. They listen. And they know that I love them. They graduated from college with honors, pay their own bills, and I can rest assured that if anything happened to me they would be okay. That alone is worth it.
Investing in your teen now, to provide them with social and emotional learning skills - proven tools and life skills - that are not taught in school is imperative in this day and age. It still does take a village…and Extreme Teen Leaders is creating a “village” where your teens have an opportunity to discover, unleash, and become the leader we know they can be. The XTL360 Community is that village. Supported by coaches, staff, and parents, our teens are safe, loved, and guided as they travel their own journey towards their vision and what they want to create in their life.
