2018 WATG Teen Conference: Youth-Driven Change: Developing Authentic Leadership to Make a Difference in the World
Friday, November 2, 2018, 8:30am-3:00pm
Wilderness Glacier Canyon Lodge, Wisconsin Dells
By Lalitha Murali
Youth need opportunities to learn about and practice leadership in meaningful and authentic ways. Public speaking / writing, and engaging the participation of others, teamwork, understanding the relationship between oneself and the community, delivering quality work, setting goals and taking action are important leadership skills. When youth are engaged, communities experience direct benefits through stronger connections to other young people in the community.
Don’t miss this fabulous interactive session with Molly Messenger, Director of Pittsfield Listens and her student leader from Nellie Mae Foundation to learn about how youth participants can ensure that their voices are heard on the issues that matter to them.
As a Gifted and Talented educator who is constantly looking for opportunities to engage my gifted students in leadership opportunities, I am so thrilled to learn about this opportunity and I can’t wait to register my middle school students for this conference.
How about you?
$60 workshop fee includes materials, breakfast, lunch and snacks
