Forge strong connections and create a global network

Unlike other virtual learning experiences, we help you build a network of young adults across the globe dedicated to leadership. We limit class size because we believe smaller groups create more engagement and build stronger relationships.

As with any RootSpring offering, you’ll have access to instructors who are dedicated to your success. We understand the challenges non-native English speakers face when taking a course in English and have developed the resources needed to help you. In fact, some courses are taught in your native language as well as English to increase your understanding. Virtual lessons allow you to participate from anywhere with a flexible schedule that fits your life. Plus, course start dates occur year-round allowing you to choose the best time for you.

You’ll benefit from our two decades of expertise in global leadership development courses. For these times when we can’t meet in person, virtual learning offers a nearly identical learning experience. You’ll be taught the same proven framework through the same engaging methods and have access to the same outstanding community. Virtual leadership courses with RootSpring will provide meaningful experiences that have the power to change your life.

Go abroad to experience leadership in action
