What is Sanctuary Leadership

Sanctuary Leadership is a leadership academy where young adults (18-29 years old) learn to become leaders through a pure education on influence that is reinforced with practical skills on taking responsibility for oneself and others.

“Parent’s and their children don’t go to Sanctuary Leadership to be eligible for a job. They come to become masters of their life.”


A world that intentionally takes responsibility for its own existence and that of its children by cultivating an abundance of natural resources and continuously influencing others to do the same.


Help people discover and train their leadership abilities, and encourage them to use these skills to cultivate natural resources.
