This is a 13 week-program.

Beautiful Landscape




Sonia Di Maulo, award-winning author and scholar, Certified Reinvention Practitioner, and Part-Time Professor at Concordia University and her team bring you Take the Leap! Make an Impact, a program specially designed with the student in mind. More about Sonia.

This experiential program combines story-telling, a systems-thinking community-based approach, positive education and inclusive online learning techniques.

You will experience a vibrant online community of like-minded students led by a dedicated dynamic team. Sonia Di Maulo, Elizabeth Graham and Cindy Balan, along with alumni of Take the Leap!, are committed to guiding and supporting your journey. A series of reflective, thought-provoking activities will propel you to discover, create, embrace, and breathe life into your living legacy. The time commitment is only 60 minutes per week.

This first-of-its-kind curriculum supplements any program of study for students at every level. Take the Leap! brings balance: mix of academics, well-being and character development.

Our goal is to engage students to complete the program with a living legacy plan that reflects a deep vision grounded in meaning and purpose. 


By the end of the program, students will be able to use the growth framework to:

  • Acquire self-assessment skills which lead to purpose-focused decisions

  • Enhance clarity, engagement, and resilience in navigating life choices

  • Apply purpose-grounded choices in 80% of decisions when uncertainty occurs.
