When Chick-fil-A Leader Academy needed a digital product for teachers and students to utilize when engaging their leadership curriculum their team approached Whiteboard about building their digital offering from the ground up. Today, over 100,000 students in 1,000+ schools have experienced the program.

High school students want an outlet to learn and lead. Most programs using speakers, seminars, or books offer short-term motivation, but long-term frustration without an outlet for action. Chick-fil-A Leader Academy engages students in monthly Leader Labs where they learn important leadership skills that they'll ultimately use to create student-led Community Impact Projects.

Chick-fil-A Leader Academy is a fresh approach to leadership development and empowers young people to truly make a difference.

Whiteboard engaged Chick-fil-A Leader Academy in a project to plan, design, develop, and deploy a web application to support the in-classroom and out-of-classroom experiences. The application serves as the central hub of content distribution and communication between the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy administrative team and the volunteer teachers and students at participating schools.

As of 2019, Chick-fil-A Leader Academy serves over 1,000 schools and has over 100,000 users on the platform. As the program is growing by the year, Whiteboard continues working on strategies and implementing features to maximize user experience and how technology is implemented on behalf of Chick-fil-A Leader Academy as they scale.

“You can’t put kids in an auditorium, talk to them about leadership for 45 minutes and then send them back to math class. Leadership happens outside your comfort zone where you have to act on what you’ve learned.”
