I would like to share with you a summary of comments that I have heard from staff and parents regarding the Academy for Leadership Abilities® (ALA):
Southern Local Schools District
Corning, OH USA
Having met and worked with the good folks at Practical Strategies and the Perry County Board of Developmental Disabilities, I can personally vouch for both their commitment to serve their communities and their capacity to do so with excellence. ALA is the outcome of that commitment and capacity, and is a most excellent educational product. I highly recommend it as a means of educating both those with and without developmental disabilities for the betterment of our communities.

When you graduate High School a lot of things happen. You practically give up the life you live to live a new life that you think will bring you happiness. But happiness has some bumps in the road. Bonds with people fall apart, you don’t see the ones you love nearly as often and if you are a college athlete your schedules are tight and fall camp drains a man physically as well as mentally. I am one of those student athletes.
I enrolled at Ohio Wesleyan University in early spring knowing that I was embarking on something new and something completely foreign to me. But, I had a set of values that had been instilled in me through school and the Academy for Leadership Abilities® (ALA) program that made me feel comfortable with this dramatic change. ALA had taught me how things aren’t going to be picture perfect and things are going to get hard but in order to reach your goals and to be successful you have to fight, claw, scratch through the hard times to reach the top rung of the ladder. It taught me to do everything I can be to help my brothers to make them better as well as myself.
Without ALA, I wouldn’t have the values that I have today and I may not have had my first winning season in football in my entire life. I am forever thankful for what ALA taught me.

Leadership is one of the key foundations to success. Every day leaders are not only off pursuing their own dreams and creating their own goals, but they are inspiring and pushing others to do the same. I was one of the students that was fortunate enough to take part in the first ever ALA program at Miller High School.
I have had a lot of great people come into my life the last few years and inspire me to be my best, push myself and push others. ALA was one of the best opportunities I had in high school. ALA taught me failure leads to success and integrity is your best friend. We are going to fail in life, we are only human. When you fail, that does not mean you can’t bounce back up and chase after your dreams. Take something from your failure and make a lesson learned. Do it better next time. Push yourself and strive to achieve your dreams.
Integrity is your best friend and once you learn to accept that, you won’t fold under pressure or let other people make bad influences on your decisions. Do what you know is right even when no one is around to see. Be the person that makes a difference by doing what is right and making the best choice. Be a leader and prove to people that they can do something great with themselves and in society. ALA inspired me and pushed me to do great things. I am strong, I am brave, and I am a leader.

You don’t have to take our word for it. Albert Einstein said we cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them, and yet that is exactly what 99% of average people do.
Every parent, grandparent and friends of folks we know is anxious to improve their children’s circumstances, but the vast majority are unwilling to teach their children to improve themselves because the do not know how. As a result they and their children remain stuck, and being stuck stinks. Yet, they work so desperately hard to change their family’s circumstances. Many parents are bright, hard-working folks, but because they have always done things in a certain way, their minds are closed to a different approach. So at their very best they earn a comfortable living, at worst they sink so deeply into self-pity; they give up hope.
The Key to a Fulfilling Life is not how much you know but how self-aware you are.
