To enable every student in the world access their Second-to-None ("220") Leadership potential.
Education does not provide students the necessary training or experiential knowledge to develop the life skills and soft skills that will allow them to be successful in any situation, career, or any endeavor they decide to pursue.
Students are not sufficiently prepared for high school or college. The US has one of the highest high school dropout rates in the world, and almost 41% of students who start college will not finish.
The current education system teaches students to never be wrong, which is not only unrealistic in the real world, but it also squanders creativity and limits students’ ability to maximize their potential in life. They are afraid to fail and make themselves vulnerable, stunting personal growth and innovation.
Students have to develop leadership and life skills through experience, and students first obtain their leadership opportunities by being high achievers. That is why we focus on helping students define personal success for themselves to foster intrinsic motivation. When they discover that their current performance affects their long-term aspirations, they can set near-term goals that actually matter to them, and they will be motivated to go the extra mile to achieve challenging academic and life goals. There is no better way to develop their leadership skills.
SIX FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES GUIDE OUR PROGRAMS
We also believe it is critical for students to grasp the concept of risk-taking and the importance of seeking out opportunities to fail. Those students that are willing to make themselves vulnerable, set challenging goals, and fail multiple times will set themselves up for unique leadership opportunities among their peers.
The 220 Mentality
The 220 Mentality is a state of mind that consistently produces the absolute best, or Second-to-None version of yourself.
To produce extraordinary results, you have to be willing to do what the average person is not willing to do. Your vision, attitude, effort, perseverance, and leadership have to be Second-to-None.
You have to adopt The 220 Mentality.
