LENS is a leadership development program, developed through Wake Forest University, with the mission to inspire the next generation of change-makers. Students are taught how to confront complex issues and tap into their passions to develop solutions. In Nicaragua, Wake Forest University partnered with Lincoln International Academy, American Nicaraguan School, and St. Augustine Preparatory School.

"LENS stands for Learning Experiencing Navigating and Solving. So what we hope to do this program for Nicaraguan high school students is to provide them with a leadership development opportunity."

"I learned to work in teams, to gather my ideas and express them and be able to work with them."
