This course is created to empower participants to discover their potential, build transferable skills and discover strategies to become a leader in the present and for the future. Our 15 week after school LIT program has changed and become a more intensive weekend course which is run over various weekends during the year. It is now structured as a 2 and a half day course (Friday 6pm till Sunday 3pm) and provides a day and a half of structured leadership skills training in a workshop format and a day of experiential leadership in practise.
This is a course for serious participants who want to learn, grow and harness and develop their leadership skills. It requires focus, work and participation. Applicants will need to demonstrate a desire to take on leadership roles and communicate their goals and intentions in completing the program before being accepted. On completion of the course they will receive a Power4Teens leader in training (LIT) certificate and the opportunity to apply for a position as a volunteer counsellor on our Summer Camps (this completes the 40 hours voluntary service required for school). On completion of the program and with the LIT certificate, girls will have access to our local partners who are also looking for Summer camp counsellors and volunteers where they can get their volunteer hours completed.
The course comprises of a Friday after school program (with pizza night provided) with introductions and team building activities where girls get to learn about themselves, other course members and how they work as a team and define their strengths and weaknesses. Saturday is comprised of developing awareness of leadership styles and how to leverage personal strengths, explore decisive conflict resolution tactics, learn effective communication strategies and the foundations of presentation and organizational skills. On Sunday they learn how to mobilize peers to achieve common goals by individually facilitating and leading games and then they work in pairs to create and organize a presentation and sales pitch to the group where feedback from the group is given and encouraged.
