Youth Leadership Program

Registration is now open for 2021-2022 leadership teams selection.

How does the program work?

  • Students are grouped together to form teams.
  • The team brainstorms and identifies two or three areas of passion/issue that they would like to address at school and/or in the local community
  • Team works with their coach/mentor once a month, and they are guided through the following process:
    • Passion to Action mapping
    • Execution Plan Development
    • On Demand guidance to address specific constraints & hurdles
    • Review results and status
    • Execution tactics improvisation
    • Leadership skills improvement
    • Team work and collaboration strategies improvement
  • Outside of the meeting with the coach, the team would meet by themselves as needed to work on their tasks and action plan implementation.


  • Student must commit and take these tasks seriously and participate with their fullest ability and willingness
  • Must meet with the coach once a month for 12 months (in-person or online)
