|LEAD, the YWCA Leadership Development Program, is designed to empower pre-teen and teen girls by focusing on three areas:|
LEADERSHIP – building leadership skills that support self-respect, self-control, and positive decision-making skills
EMPOWERMENT – challenging them to explore their world and current issues through engaged and creative learning
DEVELOPMENT – guiding and developing character and confidence that will encourage and promote effective communication skills, positive goal setting, and a strong foundation for a successful adulthood.
LEAD offers an ongoing leadership development program that meets on a bi-weekly basis and covers topics which include:
> healthy relationships
> love and dating
> goal setting
> cultural competency
> drugs and alcohol
> personal and cyber safety
> effective communication skills
To sign up for the leadership program, contact Christi Robinson at ywcanwlaTeenCoordinator@gmail.com.
WORKSHOPS are also offered throughout the year at various locations, and can be scheduled for youth groups, schools, and organizations.
