Living as Leaders started in spring 2018 with the purpose of increasing youth’s understanding of leadership and their knowledge of life skills by creating a space for them to come together, learn and begin practicing those skills and traits in the pursuit of academic and personal success. The program is implemented in partnership with LIFE Mentoring.
Living as Leaders aims for youth….
- To identify leadership skills they can practice in different situations. These may include but are not limited to communication, public speaking, decision making, and problem-solving.
- To cultivate youth’s interest in learning. This may include but is not limited to enhancing their critical thinking skills through the practice of asking questions and seeking responses.
- To identify and practice life skills that promote positive behavior.
- To become aware of career fields and be exposed to a college environment.
The spring 2022 program’s updated dates will be announced soon.
