Giving a jump start to pre-teen kids by helping them master soft skills at an early age
Silicon Valley has an extraordinary focus on STEM programs right from elementary school. Comparatively there is lack of emphasis on developing soft skills such as leadership, team building and communication at an early age. These soft skills are equally crucial for success of the students as they enter high school. At Budding Leaders, we offer FREE classes to kids to learn leadership qualities and skills. We strive to give a jump start for shaping a successful contributing member of our society by offering training through fun activities and discussions.
