The National Youth Leadership Forum is a program which high school students can enroll in which will help them to become better leaders. This is a program which has been running for many years now and it is one which is always given great respect and great feedback around its methods and most importantly, its results. As a parent it can be tricky to decide between which extra-curricular program you will chose for your children but this is one which is certainly worthy of your consideration. Both of my kids went to these programs and here is how this program can help young adults.
The program of course includes a great deal of teaching around leadership skills and they do so very specifically, speaking about many different types of leaders. Even if your child does not wish to become a leader one day or hold a management position, the by-product of this teaching is that your children will learn leadership skills which are transferable into just about any walk of life. Think about the kind of skills that a leader requires, communication skills, taking ownership, decision making, teamwork, management and patience, all skills which can be easily transferred into someone’ work or private life. If you send your kids here then they will come back a more knowledgable and more confident person.
If your child has a particular passion or a career choice in mind this will be an excellent program to send them on which can greatly help prepare them for that career choice. The program is very specific when it talks about certain roles and this can act as a sort of primer for your child so that they can see if this is really what they want, and it will help them in understanding what it will take to get the career that they want. The detailed focus on specific careers was something that both of my kids enjoyed very much and they got greta value from it.
The people who you surround yourself with are both a reflection on yourself and they are also very important when it comes to your character. This is why I was so happy to send my kids to the NYLF because I knew that they would be surrounded by smart, ambitious and motivated kids who were looking to take a positive step in their lives. Unlike some extra-curricular programs where you can’t be sure what kind of students your kids will be around, I knew that with the NYLF that my tow would be inspired and motivated in equal measure, simply because of the caliber of the other young men and women on the program.
My experience of the National Youth Leadership Forum has been nothing but positive and I am so happy that my partner and I made this decision, so much so that I would certainly recommend it for your children.
