Funding and Justification
We’re often asked what educators can do to convince their supervisors and other decision makers that they need to measure their students’ leadership behavior, so we’ve created a justification kit to help you get the buy-in and funding you need. These tools will help you justify the need for and importance of using the Student LPI to measure your students' leadership behavior. Go to the Student LPI funding and justification kit now.

We also have justification kits to help you articulate the value for you (and your colleagues) of participating in a Student Leadership Challenge training program.
