On Tuesday, April 30th an introduction to the “iCHOOSE, ILEAD” Youth Leadership Values Program was held at Mensing’s Caminada, developed by Dr. John C. Maxwell (#1 Leadership Authority in the world and who was recently honored as a recipient of the Horatio Algier award. Only 300 people hold that honor at any given time.)
We wish to infuse “community transformation,” starting with our Youth. This content has been designed specifically for teens ages 12-17 years. This program is comprise of 16 lessons spread out over four units (40 page colored booklets) with the goal of helping teenagers learn leadership values and teaching them how to apply them to their own lives.
These values are recognized by some of the largest and most successful companies in the world. iCHOOSE was designed to provide students with an environment for leadership values to be introduced, practiced and shared.
Because many of today’s teenagers equate leadership with position, abuse of power, bribery and corruption, few young people have a healthy and correct understanding of what leadership is and how they can apply it to their lives and the lives of others. The education department has partnered with Dr. John C. Maxwell to produce this program and reverse the negative portrayal of leadership by offering a desirable portrait of leadership based on values that can be applicable to a student’s life — values that teenagers can admire, implement, and choose to aspire to for a more positive and sustained style of leadership.
Barbara Leigh, John Maxwell Team Founding Partner and Executive Director will be facilitating the 8 week process. She has had the privilege and honor to join John Maxwell and his team to Guatemala and Costa Rica to facilitate Roundtable values work for Nation Transformation.
