What is the Shepperd Edge?
Leaders need training. The Shepperd Edge program is designed to teach leadership principles to college and high school students. Students explore these ideas through educational and practical sessions, leaving with skills, knowledge, and new relationships. Topics include the necessary ethical standards for leaders, the responsibility of service, and basic tools for effective leadership.
The John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute is funded by the State of Texas and private contributions so that it can promote leadership training for young Texans. Guides for facilitators and handouts for students are provided through the links below at no charge to the user.
