“Lauren emerged as a great role model for my daughter to show what a strong leader looks like. This class was unique in that it went beyond teaching just leadership and helped kids learn how to build something from the ground up that is bigger than themselves. Lauren was a kind and enthusiastic teacher. She created a safe, comfortable, and fun virtual learning environment where each child could grow.”

Lubna Hussain (Mother of Eager Leaders Students, 2017)

“Lauren made service and leadership training so much fun for my girls. She is a true activist and has amazing energy to help others.”

Raphaele Gerber (Mother of an Eager Leaders Student, 2016)

“My 10 year old daughter and her school mates were very fortunate to be part of the program.  Lauren drove the group of  kids from very diverse backgrounds (country/race/ religion/age) on major reflections. She engaged every single child in various ways (acting, playing, writing, drawing) and could always find ways to make everyone feel very special, emphasizing the positive qualities in each of them. She collected nothing but extremely positive feedback from students and parents.”

Through the Eager Leaders class, my son has not only become more proactive in seeking out leadership opportunities, but has also developed a strong sense of self-awareness, and a strategic mindset for achieving success in his school.

Lauren was always ready to help and an amazing teacher. I really learned a lot. My favorite unit was the debate one where we learned all about debate really in depth, the debate structure, and so much more. And at the end of it, we all had a full-fledged debate. All the classes are fun and interactive and you get to do so much. We did a candy drive for halloween, we made a club for kids to hang out, and we even did a clothing drive! I spent a few years in eager leaders and it was so much fun.

If you would like to see your child tap into/develop their leadership skills, I highly recommend being involved with Eager Leaders. Lauren is dynamic, personable, charismatic, and has a passion to make a difference. I have had MANY of my former students participate in Eager Leaders and they've benefited greatly.

“It was cool to see the impact and power that we had during our community service project. What we got in the end showed that you don’t have to be an adult to do something important.”

Father of an Eager Leader Student, 2020

“Lauren was a terrific positive influence for my son. He was excited to join each session of this class and eager to practice and share what he learned with everyone afterwards. Lauren has infectious enthusiasm and respect for everyone’s abilities. I’m thrilled she’s sharing her approach and insights with kids who might not otherwise encounter this kind of training and focus.”

Sarah Kerseg (Mother of an Eager Leaders Student, 2017)

“Lauren’s energy, positive attitude, and commitment will have a lasting impression on our children and for that I am very grateful.”

Eager Leaders Student, 2022

"I thought the classes were very informative but they were fun, too, and I learned a lot! I can even use my new skills in school!"
