This mixed-methods study examined the relationship between high school leadership organizations and moral growth. An analysis of the perceptions of the leadership organization advisors indicated that three characteristics of organizational activities were integral to the development of the participants' moral reasoning abilities: (a) advisors' playing an important role in helping students "wrestle" with moral dilemmas; (b) using role-playing as a crucial part of the process of analyzing moral dilemmas; and (c) integrating a moral theory curriculum into the leadership organization. Further, the results indicated that leadership organizations that contain these characteristics are able to significantly increase the moral growth of their participants. The results of this study were used to develop the Moral Development Assessment, which can be used to assess the impact of a leadership organization on moral growth.
