The IDEALS SALT program was created to fill the demand from high schools to get more of their student athletes involved in the IDEALS Leadership School curriculum and unique leadership experience. In 2011 IDEALS converted the current Leadership School curriculum into a professional DVD series with accompanying Facilitator Guide and Student Worksheets so that high schools across the country can hold the program on their respective campuses. The program is still geared primarily for junior student athletes from all sports and genders. Like the Leadership School, there is no cost to the school or student athletes to participate. Funding is provided through donations to the IDEALS Foundation Inc. to make the program available to schools.
