There are many degrees of Social Transformation: We Offer Five



If you’re wanting to live out your deepest values, if you seek a spiritual grounding for your work in the world, if you hope to build and mobilize communities of hope and faith, the world needs your presence—your deepest capacity, your strongest voice and your most effective action.

Kaleo Center prepares leaders and change-makers for social transformation. We view this work as an applied science that requires a full toolbox of strategic, analytical and practical skills, in addition to deep spiritual grounding. We also emphasize real work in real communities—through research, internships and Capstone projects.
