Count Me In

Global Student

Leadership Summit




My daughter was able to be herself and feel completely supported by peers who had no preconceived notion of who she was. She came home a more confident and self-assured young woman.

At Count Me In, we believe every student has the capacity to make a meaningful impact on their community and the world. Through direct coaching, immersive workshops, renowned keynote speakers and advanced training, our goal is to prepare students with the behaviors, skills, confidence and support to increase their leadership capacity. Uniting top student leaders from around the world for a 4-day leadership intensive, the Count Me In Global Student Leadership Summit® will allow your teen to meet the people and gain the tools to reach their next level of achievement and motivation.


For more than a decade, Count Me In has been preparing students with the high-performance habits, positive behaviors, leadership skills and confidence they need to be successful in school and life. Created by young people for young people, our unique near-peer mentorship model is engaging, inspiring, and equips students with the tools and support system they need to grow.


We dive deep into topics like conflict resolution, emotional intelligence, stress management, working with teams, public speaking, building confidence, leveraging strengths, clarifying life direction, and making positive choices.


With an impressive alumni network of young change-makers spanning six continents, the Count Me In Global Student Leadership Summit® is recognized as the premier international student leadership training program. Students from more than 20 countries have completed our certified leadership training at the Count Me In Global Student Leadership Summit®, and perhaps most importantly they have brought new skills, vision and perspective back to their schools, associations, and communities.


We believe leadership is an everyday practice, and our core mission is helping students become the best leaders they can be.


In order to best support students on their journey, we offer a balanced experiential training program. Developing wellness, character and self-care practices are just as important as increasing physical capacity and skills. At Count Me In, we take pride in offering a personalized coaching experience, and support Participants as they refine their personal goals and sense of direction.

I encourage you to read our alumni success stories, watch our videos, and review the measured results and metrics that separate this program from every other student leadership training. If you have questions about the program, or want to learn more about the impact of our training, please reach out. Our team and I would love to hear from you and answer any questions you have.


Here’s to you and your legacy,
