Youth Leadership Training
This 12-week online course is based on the book "7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens". Students will focus on personal development, team building skills and creating weekly action steps. Students will be expected to read a chapter from the book each week and then join the group discussion through a zoom link where we will meet as a virtual class. This platform enables students to interact with the instructor and other students and offers chat features and whiteboard activities. Class time will be used for teaching, activities and group coaching.
What to expect:
- Group Discussion
- What challenged you?
- What motivated you?
- Create Individual Goals and Action Steps
- What are your strengths?
- What areas need attention?
- What will you do?
- Establish a Buddy System for accountability and support
Class size will be limited to maximize learning and create a safe environment to share.

A Psychology Today article says this:
- Our nation values leadership, but we do not teach it well.
- Colleges place a strong emphasis on leadership, as any high school senior who is filling out applications can tell you. We watch movies and read books about leaders. It borders on a national obsession yet employers see a gaping deficit.
- Thousands of the world’s most respected employers were asked two questions:
- 1) what are the skills critical to success in the modern workplace and
- 2) what skills do new hires lack.
- Of the roughly 100 skills surveyed, “leadership” ranked in the top 10. It also showed the second greatest skill deficit in recent college graduates (second only to “written communication”).
- Roughly 28% of graduates are described as “deficient” with only a small fraction deemed highly skilled.
- If we value and respect leadership so much and it correlates with success in the workplace, why then do we see such a gaping deficit?
Why should you invest in this program for your teen?
It will bridge the gap and set your child up for success!
