Mission, Vision & Motivation


Mission, Vision & Motivation

The mission of Leadership Mission International is...

To educate, train, and develop a new generation of ethical leaders by providing exceptional academics and hands-on leadership opportunities to individuals from underprivileged families.

Our long-term vision is...

That graduates will create long-term, sustainable solutions in their communities and country.


Leadership Mission International is looking for sponsors to fulfill all sponsorship needs of our newest cohort of students who began studies in April. If you are interested in being a sponsor, please click here. To learn more about our students, please click here.


We work in Honduras through The Leadership Center where we provide educational and leadership development programs to young women. We are a faith-based, U.S. nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization and public charity. We, in part, see our mission at The Leadership Center as reflecting God’s love to those who we seek to serve. We gratefully welcome all volunteers, teachers and others who share our heart for serving those in need.


In 2011, Glen Evans launched The Leadership Center to provide ethical leadership training and educational opportunities for women, who are so desperately in need of additional opportunities to better themselves. In 2013, Joseph Rahm and Ira Lucia founded Leadership Mission International as the 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization that now provides resources to and manages The Leadership Center.
