Youth Leadership Academy
The Youth Leadership Academy of KidsGames aims to transform our communities through developing a base of young leaders who can influence their generation.The mission is to train, prepare and mentor young potential leaders (12-15 years old), identified through their involvement in previous KidsGames, on the needed skills and knowledge to effectively influence their community.
The curriculum is presented through:
:: Local Athletes and Business professionals sharing
:: Experiential Learning Building Activities
:: Small Group Discussions
:: Case studies
The program will be offered weekly over 12 weeks twice per school year at participating KidsGames sites. It will be presented as an after-school alternative at these locations.
Participants are given opportunities to apply their training during the school year at church functions, community center programming, athletics, and future KidsGames programs.
