Think for a moment about the successful leaders you know. Chances are they all have one quality in common - the ability to communicate effectively. It is important that people develop this ability early in life so that they may successfully meet the challenges of adulthood and leadership.
The Youth Leadership Programme helps young people develop their communication and leadership skills so that they may become tomorrow’s leaders in business, industry and community.
The course is conducted by our members as part of our community programme.
The Youth Leadership Programme is based on the belief that every young person has the potential to become a good communicator and leader, and the potential needs to be developed.
The programme’s unique design enables participants to develop this potential through practical experience. Participants learn speaking and leadership skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.
They learn to:
Overcome their nervousness, when asked to speak before an audience, organize and present their ideas logically and convincingly, listen carefully to others’ ideas, offer advice that will help others improve their speaking & leadership skills, participate and even lead group discussions or meetings.
Who Should Attend
Youths in the age group of 13 - 19 years can participate in the programme.
This programme is limited to 30 people. This allows each participant to receive individual attention and the opportunity to get practical experience.
