Albert Schweitzer Leadership for Life Operates as the flagship program of the ICCUSA Foundation, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that actively promotes educational opportunities for young adults all across the globe. ASLFL’s efforts meet the educational mission of the Ireland Chamber while providing members with the knowledge that they are creating a better world – a more prosperous, peaceful world with strong and courageous leadership free of bigotry, ambivalence and cultural ignorance.
Don’t Wait For Leaders, Create Them
While teaching important leadership skills, the need to encourage students to “give back” to their communities is essential. Dr. Schweitzer was a champion of this philosophy and, with permission granted by Rhena Schweitzer Miller, the daughter of Dr. Schweitzer, our organization is proud to carry his name, share his philosophies and accept his invitation to “invest in humanity” to make the world a better place.
Exposing all students to the significant benefit of mentors –high-profile leaders in business, government, education and the non-profit sector – is a major component of the Albert Schweitzer Leadership for Life program. As part of our Albert Schweitzer Distinguished Lecture Series, these leaders, many of whom are recipients of national and international honors, form an integral part of the ASLFL program.
The curriculum for the leadership conference is acquired from the Hugh O’Brien Leadership Program in the USA called HOBY.
