Youth Leadership

  • Do you believe young people are prepared to become tomorrow’s leaders?
  • Are their scholastic results what they should be?
  • Would you like to see increased grade point averages?
  • Would you like to see them complete college on the 4-year plan instead of the 5 or 6-year plan?
  • Could we do a better job of preparing our young people to … climb higher, reach farther, and perform better?

Enabling youth to make positive life choices

Youth developmentThe Rising Stars Process is designed to help today's youth develop their personal leadership skills and begin to set goals and directions for their lives beginning at an earlier age. Leadership is essential in enabling youth to develop character, confidence, and values that promote the understanding of healthy behavior.

Rising Stars is an innovative and unique inside-out self-development process. This evidence-based approach focuses on three critical elements that promote personal leadership, healthy behaviors, and the skills employers identify as essential. These elements are developed, applied, and reinforced throughout the process and through a follow-up process to strengthen and perpetuate successful behaviors.

"To me this class is about morals, values, positive behavior, as well as attitude. I have learned that anything I want to do can be done if I want it bad enough. This class has taught me how to set my goals and how to achieve them. My outlook on life is so much more positive than it was ten weeks ago. I have learned many things from this class but the most important to me is that life is virtuous and should always be valued." – Kelsey M., Rising Stars Participant

"This Leadership Program has helped me get through many problems and ... control my anger. This program was very educational, there were high expectations, and it made you take a close look at yourself. As for me, there were things that I used to do that I have learned to change ... for example, to never get frustrated with the goals I am trying to achieve and to keep a positive head no matter what."
