After a thorough search for a program like the Leadership Incubator to recommend to the students and families we empower, we came up empty-handed. Recognizing a service gap, we took the initiative to launch this innovative and empowering program, paving the way to leadership for young people of all abilities.

Integrate for Good's Leadership Incubator is a unique 12-week program, where each cohort, consisting of six to eight participants, meets for two hours each week. The program is designed with flexibility in mind, offering additional, optional engagements to enrich the experience. Our curriculum respects and celebrates diverse learning styles with universally designed instruction that is engaging and inclusive for all. We incorporate guest speakers, multi-media presentations, and hands-on experiential learning to ensure a multifaceted approach.

Integrate for Good’s Leadership Incubator offers a unique and dynamic 12-week in-person experience tailored for neurodiverse young adults. Designed to empower and support personal and leadership growth, the program brings together small cohorts of six to eight participants for two-hour weekly sessions that encourage exploring individual strengths and enhancing communication skills. With a curriculum that celebrates diverse learning styles, our universally designed instruction is both engaging and flexible, incorporating engaging workshops, collaborative activities, and one-on-one mentoring. Participants will have the chance to cultivate confidence and develop their leadership abilities in a nurturing environment, fostering a strong sense of purpose and community connection. To enrich the learning journey, we offer additional optional engagements, including guest speakers, multimedia presentations, and experiential learning, ensuring a comprehensive and inclusive educational experience.

Upon completing the Leadership Incubator, participants emerge as confident, prepared leaders ready to take the helm at our inclusive volunteering events. These events take place in community spaces such as libraries, on college campuses, and within corporate environments, offering a variety of experiences and learning opportunities.

Integrate for Good's Leadership Incubator stands as an innovative solution intent on building a culture of inclusion and equity. We are committed to changing the narrative by emphasizing 'ability' within 'disability', providing a nurturing environment for individuals to discover and hone their unique leadership styles.
