Support the Southwest Iowa Leadership Academy


Please do not use all caps.

The Southwest Iowa Leadership Academy serves  seven area middle schools in West Pottawattamie County, Iowa.  Established in 1989 the mission of this organization is to equip emerging leaders with skills that will engage their abilities to make a difference in their schools and communities.

Each school group is selected through an application process which includes an application, letters of recommendation, and an interview.  Student numbers are determined by a percentage of the total student population for that school's seventh grade class.

Each school provides licensed staff who serve as base group leaders for the academy and then are the advisors the following  year for each school group.
