LOCATION: Maple Community Centre
Our Youth Leadership Program aims to expand our participants’ capacity to perform in leadership roles by improving their skills, abilities and confidence. We focus on coaching collaborative leadership development that emphasizes teamwork, communication, motivation, and problem-solving.
We believe that action speaks louder than words. That is why we love to run unique interactive leadership activities that reflect discussion topics every week. These fun activities will allow participants to put newly learnt concepts into practice while improving teamwork skills.
Levels of Leadership
We will introduce participants to the levels of leadership. They will have the opportunity to identify their current skills, create a comprehensive goal, and develop a path of action that will lead them to achieve their goals.
Ethical & Strategic Leadership
A good leader is considerate of the dignity and rights others while being able to openly express their vision, and motivate others to join them to accomplish a common goal. Our participants will learn how to manage difficult situations in strategic and ethical ways to lead to a positive outcome.
We offer one-on-one coaching for those who want to continue growing their leadership skills beyond the Youth Leadership Workshop. Coaching sessions availability is limited, and they must book ahead of time.
