The Curriculum

iLead’s peer to peer format allows students to get experience leading as they take turns facilitating groups. Each lesson contains a short teaching on a value or leadership characteristic, asks students to rate how well they practice this characteristic, and asks them to commit to one action step for the week that will allow them to improve their score in this area. iLead offers multiple course options.


  • iChoose – recommended for year 1, connects Values & Leadership
  • iDo – recommended for year 2, connects Actions & Leadership
  • iLead – recommended for year 3, connects Influence & Leadership
  • iChoose XLR8 – condenses iChoose for a more accelerated pacing

iLead uses imagery that strengthens lesson content recall through associations. For example, iChoose, the first course in the iLead series, consists of 16 values broken down into 32 lessons each with a representative image. The lessons and representative image are listed below:

The Impact

iLead has been implemented in countries where the Maxwell Leadership Foundation has partnered with the streams of influence in an all-out country transformation effort! Transformational work was launched in Guatemala in 2013 and the values based leadership programming delivered was so incredibly effective with adults that John Maxwell knew he needed to provide something similar for youth. iLead was birthed out of this belief.

Since iLead’s launch in 2018, it has been implemented broadly in Guatemala, Paraguay, Costa Rica, Brazil, and Rwanda. The Maxwell Leadership Foundation is also currently focusing its efforts to expand iLead in the United States.
