Our programs give young people the tools, skills and confidence to make a difference and create maximum impact on the things they care about most. We’ve developed a hands-on approach to skills development that includes deeper levels of learning and leadership training.
Service-learning and leadership training helps youth in middle, high school and University students, develop deep understanding of the service in combination with leadership skill building. Encompassing both hard and soft skill building, training modules include content on bias and stereotype, project management, community needs mapping and evaluation. Through training, young people learn what it means to plan and execute projects that are impactful for the community and themselves.
Why do get involved in this program?
1. Increased Productivity
By training your leaders in effective leadership skills, you can increase the productivity of your workforce. Leaders are there to provide direction to staff and ensure they are performing at or above expectations.
In the case of a shortfall, the leaders you’ve trained will have the ability to assess problems, manage situations, and provide sensible solutions.
2. Develop Better Emotional Intelligence
Emotional intelligence is one of the main personality traits that makes for a great leader. Understanding how emotions affect others ensures that people lead efficiently and considerately.
Leadership training programs put a strong emphasis on emotional intelligence because it leads to more successful outcomes.
3. Project Leadership
Without sufficient project leadership skills, leaders will likely struggle to handle all aspects of a project. This lack might cause the project to go off course and end in substantial losses to the business. Staff morale is also likely to decrease due to incorrect guidance and magnified stress.
By teaching effective leadership skills, your leaders will be able to better manage their teams and complete projects efficiently and on schedule. This increased efficiency will boost your overall productivity and result in greater profits.
