Youth Leadership

YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

“The Absolute Good Youth Leadership Experience”

THE YOUTH LEADERSHIP SERIES IS A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE VALUABLE SKILLS & EXPERIENCES TO YOUTH. BY PROVIDING PURPOSE-DRIVEN TOOLS ABOUT – FINANCE, FAMILY, COMMUNITY, CAREER & HEALTH, WE CREATE LEADERS. OUR FOCUS IS ON SELF-DISCOVERY, PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, EMPOWERMENT, AND NEW CHOICES WHICH WILL LEAD TO SUCCESS.

Suggested Structure of Sessions: We have found it best to “continue the learning” over a concentrated, designated period of time. The suggested Mission: Possible Youth Leadership Series length is 3 to 5 or 5 to 10 Sessions with 5-55 participants per class session.

Audience Age Group: Each session will provide youth new perspectives and ultimately a new sense of “self” in today’s ever-changing world of technology and instant gratification.

Leadership Facilitator: Jo Lena Johnson, Founder, of Absolute Good, developed the curriculum and will serve as the “Leadership Facilitator,” utilizing her experience in training over 65,000 adult & youth learners throughout the U.S., Canada, and the United Kingdom.
