We need responsible and effective leaders in our communities, our cities, our country and the world. We need leaders in the workplace, in government, and in charitable organizations. Who will become the leaders of the future? The answer is… the teenagers of today.
Teens have challenges
Teens today have a challenging time taking the next step toward becoming responsible adults and contributing to their community.
Between school, work, extracurricular activities, and family responsibilities, there are a lot of things to take care of amid all of the typical distractions in every teen’s life.
In addition, they are still trying to learn how to be mature in the way that they handle things and relate to others.
To help meet these demands and to prepare them for adulthood, it is important for teens to learn about and gain leadership skills.
Attributes such as: building relationships, communication, public speaking, planning, and taking initiative can all benefit teens in becoming more proactive in the world around them.
