Over the past 35 years, QLN's academic summer camp, youth programs, in-school and workshop programs in the areas of learning-and-life skills, teaching and training, and effective learning environments have become a leading resource for students, parents, teachers, school administrators and businesses. QLN President and co-founder, Bobbi DePorter's vision of schools, families, and businesses producing creative and responsible people ready to participate in a global community, has remained strong and continues to grow.
SuperCamp, QLN's learning and life skills academic summer camp program for students from 6th grade through college, began its first program with 64 people.
Today, with a new 42,000 square foot Southern California campus and worldwide academic programs and training, SuperCamp has graduated over 55,000 students. SuperCamp's innovative and engaging learning-to-learn techniques help students increase their academic achievement in such areas as reading, study skills, writing, math and critical thinking, while also enhancing important life skills in the areas of communication, leadership, relationships, self-worth, personal responsibility, goal-setting and much more.
QL Education directly serves the academic world with its highly successful educational model through staff development and curriculum workshops for teachers and school administrators and learning and life skills programs for students. This synergistic approach to the learning process has been proven to increase academic achievement and improve kids' attitudes toward learning, while reigniting teachers by helping them tap back into why they went into teaching in the first place. Over 5 million students have been impacted through the company's Quantum Learning youth programs.
In recent years, Bobbi DePorter and her husband and business partner, Joe Chapon, have applied their learning principles and techniques to the business world. QLN's Quantum Business division provides businesses with three distinct areas of instruction - Shifting Corporate Culture, Train the Trainer and Advanced Learning Skills - each of which are tailored to a specific company's needs. In every program, employees will discover the eight keys to a successful business environment and communication models that create honest, open and supportive relationships.
