Encouraging Youth Leadership by Understanding Leadership Styles - Webinar

04/29/2019 3:30 pm -5:00 pm
Online

This webinar is for individuals who would like to learn more about empowering youth leaders and increase their own understanding of leadership. Educators and Teen Court Leaders are invited to attend.  

SROs/JPOs are also invited to attend; however, please note this training does not fulfill the yearly advanced LRE Academy requirement for School Safety Program funded SROs/JPOs.

Event Overview

Every human being is a leader who has unique strengths and abilities to lead and make a difference. In this session, you will have the opportunity to learn about your own leadership style and leave with a better understanding of your natural leadership abilities and how you work best with others. You will be able to relate these discoveries to youth leadership and development. In addition, you will explore Roger Hart's Ladder of Participation as an evaluation and planning tool for youth workers and educators. The Ladder of Participation details levels of youth involvement in classrooms and youth programs, from the lowest level of Manipulation to the highest level of Youth Initiated Shared Decisions with Adults. It can be an important tool to use when developing youth leaders. Young people are changing the world and it is important to understand how we as adults and educators can encourage them to rise to their full potential.

Overview of the National Youth Leadership Council (NYLC)  

NYLC was founded in 1983 to train young people to be servant leaders in their communities in response to tension caused by racially integrated school districts. In our first project, young adults were coached to recognize and respond to the injustices around them, and to utilize acts of volunteer service to create change in their schools. From this early start, NYLC became a national leader in the development of service-learning; an approach to teaching in which students apply academic knowledge and skills to a genuine community problem. We continue to serve as a leading resource, hosting workshops, and conferences for youth and educators.
