Tuition $500

In the past, the MAJIC Leadership Training Program has been completely underwritten by grants and donations. Over the last several years, we have greatly expanded our robust and award-winning leadership training program. As such, tuition is $500 per student. The cost for the program is approximately $2500 per student and is partially underwritten by grants and donations.

No candidate will be turned away due to cost.
