We activate the

potential of the individual

to create good

in their world.

The School of Statesmanship, Stewardship, and Service (SOSSAS) is a learning environment that activates individual human potential, elevates leadership skills, grows social-emotional intelligence, improves communication skills, and ultimately creates a future we all want to live into.

What if we had…

Statespeople who were adept at harmonizing contrasting perspectives.

Elected officials whose approach to communication appealed to different minds and personalities.

Community leaders who connect with others to transcend the rhetoric that keeps us stuck in conflict.

Community connectors who viewed the world, neighborhoods, and people through the lens of goodness.

Active, engaged citizens who believe life-giving  ideals of community are spawned by love, service, and belonging.

People who want to create a future – one in which we ALL want to live.

“The School of Statesmanship offers an approach that empowers anyone who aspires to be a leader – whether they choose to lead within their family, neighborhood, workplace or the larger community. This approach is truly a path toward achieving shared aspirations. We find it so important that we plan to keep our employees involved on a regular basis.”
