Run at the same time as the Leavers week, Leavers 2 Leaders gives parents and students a counter-cultural alternative with a long lasting legacy. Leavers 2 Leaders embraces the concept of ‘servant leadership’ and exploring the world God has given us through acts of service and understanding.
The program was originated by Southern Hills Christian College as an opportunity to build leadership traits within its students by travelling overseas and experiencing the cultural diversity that the Philippines offers.
Today the trip has been expanded to include students from Ellenbrook Christian College and Swan Christian College and will expose these students, physically and emotionally, to what life in a third world country is like. In the past students have built homes and orphanages, operated meal programs, run medical clinics and helped micro businesses.
The purpose of the program is to allow the students to grow as individuals in a safe environment and inspire them to make a real difference in this world.
