FIFTEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
The FIFTEEN leadership and life skills development program is the premier program for E2L. FIFTEEN carries students through a three-year interactive curriculum focusing on core values of character, commitment, service, and life-long learning, during which they learn social responsibility, self-awareness, leadership, and life skills.
The goal of FIFTEEN is to develop emerging leaders within public high schools and, as a result, to produce well-rounded individuals who take ownership of their future and who promote social responsibility within their communities.

Expected FIFTEEN Outcomes
E2L has achieved tremendous success in having participating students not only succeed in and graduate from high school (at a 100% rate), but also go on to college (89%) or the military (6%).
