Leadership Academy

Our Leadership Academy

The Light Foundation Leadership Academy offers young people a variety of outdoor and hands-on learning activities that support their social and emotional learning; build strong, good character; and equip them with the tools and skills needed to start their leadership journey and stay with them every step of the way.

Our four desired outcomes:


Be Informed – Young people have the necessary knowledge and understanding about career, training, and education options available to them.


Be Inspired – Young people are passionate and excited about their future and they acknowledge the breadth of opportunity awaiting them.


Build Skills – Young people have the necessary skills to achieve their goals and create success.


Believe in Me – Young people have the confidence, self-esteem, positive belief and attitude needed to push beyond any real or perceived barriers they may face.

The Leadership Academy curriculum consists of Camp Vohokase, Timber Frame Leadership Camp, Youth Turkey Hunts, Leadership Conference, LIGHT Project, Matt Light All-Conference Football Camp, Hooked on Fishing and Chenoweth Trails Family Programming.

“Our goal is to inspire kids to work hard, put their best foot forward, and strive to become champions in the game of life.”

– Matt Light, Co-Founder
