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.

“Parents and their children do not come to Sanctuary Leadership simply to become eligible for a job. They come here to become masters of their lives.”


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.


To help people discover and train their leadership abilities, and encourage them to use these skills to cultivate natural resources for a more abundant future.
