  For immediate release...for immediate release... FLA to Pilot the LeadStar™ and LeadSmart™ Inaugural Programs in the UAE Announces exclusive regional partnership with Kidlead; programs to be launched inmid-December 2011Dubai – November 29 th , 2011: The Future Leadership Academy (FLA) today announced anexclusive regional partnership with Kidlead, the world’s first leadership trainingorganization for children. The inaugural pilot programs, LeadStar™ and LeadSmart™focusing on kids aged between 10 to 13 and 14 to 18 respectively, are set to launch inthe UAE in mid-December before being rolled out to other Gulf countries in the secondhalf of 2012.Dr. Alan E Nelson, Founder and CEO of Kidlead, a non-profit educational foundation thatfocuses on children and youth, said: “We are excited to be working in this region inpartnership with FLA. Our leadership programs are dedicated to raising effective andethical leaders by developing them while they are still moldable. Consider these asexecutive caliber training programs for pre-teens and early teens, focusing on a life stagewhen young leaders are still pliable in their character, but mature enough to be taughtsophisticated social skills required for leading.” The LeadStar™ and LeadSmart™ programs are based on a platform that teaches thesixteen most desirable leadership qualities, dividing them into four modules, eachconsisting of eight sessions, typically formatted in 90-minute club settings. These aretaught by certified trainers using media, experiential activities and real-to-life projects.The program also includes parent and mentor training.Additionally, all students interested to enroll will be required to have a parent and teachertake the Leadership Influence Survey™ as a pre-requisite to help identify theirobservable organizational leader qualities. Once they graduate, program participants will   join an alumni program that will allow them to remain engaged in the study and practiceof leadership. “Our special ‘Developing Your Child to Lead’ seminar for parents will cover recent findingson how to develop the full leadership potential in children. We will be discussing the 10indicators of leadership aptitude in kids, why the 10 to 13 year window is the key forethical leadership development as well as the five common adult responses that limit ayoung leader’s ability,” added Nelson.Commenting on the partnership, Aman Merchant, Founder and Chief Emagination Officer,FLA, said, “This partnership with Kidlead is our first program under the LEAD side of ourunique 'Think, Lead, Impact' platform and sets the stage for other programs we expect toannounce in the very near future. By increasing the sense of confidence, empowermentand purpose that young people acquire early in life, they will be better prepared to takeon the mantle of leadership and serve as active members of society earlier in life.”  “The first batch of LeadStar™ and LeadSmart™ sessions are expected to be run witharound 100 children and will launch in the holiday period in December, giving parents anexciting new option for their children to spend their free time, discovering and developingtheir talents in ways unseen before in this region,” concluded Merchant.The FLA was launched earlier this month, targeting to develop one million young futureleaders aged 3 to 24 years across the Middle East, Africa and South Asia. It will work asa leadership and learning 'open-source platform' offering a unique multi-tiered leadershippotential accelerator built around three core concepts – Think, Lead and Impact. Thesocial venture’s kick-off initiative was FLA-SAGE that is part of a global program calledSAGE that encourages teenagers to create commercial and social entrepreneurialventures on their school campuses, and is now active in 20 countries. -ENDS-  About the Future Leadership Academy: The Future Leadership Academy (FLA) is a leadership and learning open-source platform that willalso serve as a school of thinking and a youth social-innovation incubator working as a positivechange agent.
