We see a world with people who have what it takes to be leaders both in their own lives and for others. Leaders who, through bold and compassionate action, make positive changes in the world that benefit us all. We see a world where all people receive the tools and education they need to spread the word and inspire sustainable forward momentum.
All It Takes is a non-profit organization that cultivates leadership through active individual and team training. Our programs teach young people at critical life stages to boldly practice empathy, compassion, acceptance, accountability and purpose in order to create sustainable, positive change for themselves, others, and the environment.
And here’s how we do it:
Our mission is simple. To empower our youth and inspire meaningful, lasting change that will create a positive and sustainable impact on our society.

Leadership trainings impact the way youth feel about themselves and others and their responsibility to take ownership of their lives and the planet. Youth are empowered to find joy for themselves and create environments where everyone feels safe and can thrive.

Our work to create positive impact is fueled by passion and promise to go the distance and provide cutting edge programs and curriculum. Our Youth Leadership Camps are like none other and your contributions make attendance possible for youth everywhere. We are thankful for our amazing sponsors who are vital to maintaining our daily operations. That said, many hands get more done!
All It Takes was founded in 2010 by Lori and Shailene as a global call to action. We believe that each of us has a responsibility to humanity and our planet to be a part of sustainable positive change and that happiness comes from participating in ways we are individually passionate about.
Our Founding Family
Lori Woodley, Tanner Woodley and Shailene Woodley
Beyond the global message, All It Takes focuses on Youth Leadership under Lori’s expertise and direction. After 25 years as a school counselor focusing on experiential learning, parenting support, peer programs and emotional intelligence, Lori now spends her time writing and speaking on emotional intelligence issues, parenting dilemmas and the transformational work experiential education creates all while guiding All It Takes’ programming and executive operations.
After 4 years of attending camps as a participant, mentor, and staff member, Tanner joined the All It Takes team as an executive board member. He continues working directly with the planning and implementation of our programs. As a board member he has become an active voice for the youth whom we serve, helping us to meet their needs and inspire their growth.
All It Takes is a family and community affair, we look forward to you joining us as a partner, donor, participant or volunteer.
