After organising and participating in a debate between students in London School of Economics and students in Leadership School, I can only say that I am enthused by the passion and drive that the students at the Leadership School have. I believe that the School not only teaches, but inspires, and it is inspiration that makes the difference between great people and great leaders.

Visiting the Leadership School was one of the best parts of my trip to
Armenia. I can sincerely attest to the intelligence, creativity, and
enthusiasm of the students. I presented on the topic of servant
leadership and afterwards, engaged in an interesting discussion with
students on the merits of good servant leader. Connecting with young
people who are so excited about improving life in their country,
really inspired me to learn more about Armenia. I would highly
recommend becoming more acquainted with the amazing work of this

I visited the Leadership School (LS) in Yerevan in April 2011, when I had the chance to give a short presentation on past projects that I had worked on in the United States, and talk with LS students about their ideas for creative social and business initiatives. It was great to have the opportunity to connect with young entrepreneurs and activists in Armenia, and both hear about their interests and projects and share ideas for the future.

I spent a month as an intern participating in the programs of the Leadership School Foundation and conducting research.
The young people I met truly left their marks on me by being so inspired and motivated to do their work. It was great to have some new perspective that I can also use in my future studies in Finland, and in the work I will be doing after graduating. I am so grateful to the team members for really dedicating their time to help and involving in the projects they were implementing!

I visited the Leadership School (LS) in April 2011 and had a terrific
experience meeting with students who promise to be next generation of
Armenian leaders. We talked about topics ranging from non-profits to
government accountability to Web 2.0 technologies and the students
impressed me with their enthusiasm and their originality. I am
confident that LS will continue to offer useful and innovative
programs to Armenian youth in the future and that graduates of the LS
will play a leading role in shaping their country - and the rest of

I am very glad that I could be involved in Leadership School (LS) from the beginning of the foundation. The time I spent there has affected me in terms of value, belief and attitude towards my life afterwards.
I was really impressed by the enthusiasm that team members, who are now my friends, had for the sake of Armenia\'s better future. I certainly believe that LS will make their dreams come true as long as they maintain their passion and enthusiasm with their hope.
