Torch Leadership Academy

Our mission is to develop and empower leaders through meaningful connections and transformative experiences.

Ignite your leadership potential

Torch Leadership Academy (TORCH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that hosts a 4-day leadership program at Stockton University, free of cost for over 60 rising sophomore, junior, and senior high school students.

TORCH is run by a volunteer group of professionals and college students, many of whom have worked together for over 25 years. We provide advanced leadership seminars and service learning opportunities throughout the year for past participants.

We provide fun and engaging opportunities for students to explore their unique leadership potential, inspiring them to contribute meaningfully to their communities.

What Students Say About TORCH

"The lessons I learned and the memories I made will stay with me for a lifetime. I feel better equipped to face challenges, lead with confidence, and build strong relationships with others, all thanks to the guidance and mentorship I received."

"Throughout the program, I was challenged in ways I never imagined. The activities and exercises forced me to step out of my comfort zone and break free from the constraints of my shell. Your guidance, support, and encouragement played a vital role in helping me discover new aspects of myself and unlock my potential."

"I am immensely grateful for the bonds that were forged within our team. The sense of camaraderie and unity we developed was beyond anything I had experienced before. Together, we faced various challenges, celebrated victories, and supported one another through every step of the journey. These unbreakable bonds have left an indelible mark on my heart."
