Why Upper Primary & High School Youth?


Youth at these stages suffer from these key problem areas;

• Lack of strategic academics & career preparation in schools & colleges

• Lack of clear academic pathways to successful careers

• Lack of preparation for admissions to top, world class universities e.g. Ivy League Schools

• Lack of comprehensive, intentional leadership development programs for youth

• “Work Ready” youth on graduation from academic programs in schools & colleges

• Lack of Entrepreneurship development in youth!

There are few programs specifically designed to address the above. Youth therefore lack knowledge on identifying their personal gifts, talents, skills and abilities – so as to best match these with available career opportunities. Career decisions are made based on academic grades, college placement, guess-work, peer & parental pressure or media exposure and the lack thereof. Totally ignoring the individual’s inner and long term future options.

Purely academic based examination systems are a poor measurement of a student’s retentive, analytical, moral and emotional intelligence – yet are the standard used in eliminating students when in competition for limited academic places. As a result, Lifeskills needed to success are not instilled. Change is a given; by definition, an effective leader is able to anticipate, strategize for, and enable themselves and organisations to proactively navigate change; managing, pioneering & leading change. This seminar introduces youth as potential future leaders to better understand, address, embrace, manage & lead change as a positive process in the pursuit of their lifetime vision, mission and goals.
