Creating applications that focus on students to make them understand the value of society, and to be an active member of it, is important, as it is needed to educate them correctly in academic environment, near to the formal learning process applied till now. For this in this paper we present a platform named “Being Example: A different kind of leadership” that encourage students to participate and communicate with all the school students to interchange and discuss educative problems they have. “Being example” platform is the extension of the presented platform “Looking for Leaders”, it encourages students to be leaders, by performing good actions and promote their peers to follow them, and not to just because of the skills they have.
