Education with a purpose

“That which goes deepest to the heart goes widest to the world.”
-Dr. Rev. Bryant Kirkland


Innovation Approach:

Know yourself and your world. Join a movement of world changers

Veritas innovators are on a mission. They see themselves as part of a bigger picture, uniquely gifted with important skills and talents to share with the world. For more information, submit an inquiry below.

Interact with the experts. Learn from transformational leaders with public, private, and non-profit sector experience

Veritas coaches and guest speakers include CEOs, public officials, non-profit executives and field experts. Contemporary issues are discussed as rising leaders understand how to lead and sustain positive change.

Share your dreams and goals. Tell your unique story

Veritas innovators are encouraged to link their education with a bigger purpose in life. Through the development of a project they gain self-confidence and problem solving abilities. High-school students learn how to use their unique narratives to transform the world around them.

Explore the past, observe the present and envision the future. Become a modern day hero

Rising leaders learn about leadership and entrepreneurship from the great minds of history. Students prepare to be “history makers” as they analyze case studies that feature historical and modern day heroes of character. They also engage in a process of introspection and reflection as they are encouraged to do a world of good.

Be courageous as you create. Bring your ideas to reality in our innovation workshops and entrepreneurship labs

Students learn to quantify and identify specific social problems, to propose solutions, to develop a business plan, and to launch a project with a team. Past projects have included social, economic, and technological innovations with the goal of creating flourishing communities.

Impact the world from here. Make a difference in the lives of others

Whether our students decide to impact lives locally or around the world, our program participants are equipped to make a difference through sustainable, replicable and scalable impact models.
