How the Blanchard Institute enables the next generation of self leaders

The Blanchard Institute is focused on leadership training for students aged 14 – 18 years to teach the mindset and skillset of a self-leader. We’ve taken what we know has worked best in the corporate world and adapted the content for young adults. Students explore how to take responsibility, communicate better, gain confidence, and set clear goals. Additionally, students who complete the class requirements earn a digital credential—perfect for adding to resumes and online portfolios.

Presently in Aotearoa and the Pacific Islands, students (and champions) are eligible to enrol in the globally-run Student Self Leadership Collaborative Online course. 

Blanchard Aotearoa New Zealand is partnered with The Blanchard Institute so that any virtual live events are run in a suitable local timezone.

How We Do It

We offer student leadership programmes at no cost to the participants.

Student Self Leadership Collaborative Online

For high school students only, this course is offered four times a year. Students have one hour of self-study a week, meet virtually with a Blanchard trainer one hour a week, and receive a digital badge.

Student Self Leadership Collaborative Online for Champions

For the parents, coaches, teachers, or any adult who leads or influences the high school student who is enrolled in the Student Self Leadership course, this course is offered four times a year in conjunction with the student course. Adults learn strategies to support their student in their new learning.

Join our commitment to empowering students

The Blanchard Institute aims to break down the barrier to high-quality leadership programmes. We want to provide the same high standard of Blanchard training programmes to all middle and high school students, organisations, and the people who lead them. Help us change students’ lives. Bring this programme to your community or your organisation, or learn how to facilitate it.
