Middle & High School Leadership Academy Update:
The leadership academy has been hard at work over the last month. Students throughout the MOV participate in the program. This program has helped numerous individuals grow in many different aspects. Throughout the last month, we have focused on communication, relaxation, and how to set and achieve goals. All of these are necessary characteristics of a leader.
Through games and activities, we have seen tremendous improvements from the youth of our community. These students now understand verbal and nonverbal communication and how it works throughout the workplace. The students participated in a game where one individual was blindfolded and the rest had to communicate with them on how to reach a certain location in the gym. The students quickly realized the effects of effective communication.
The students also enjoyed some relaxation time during the academy. The students participated in yoga where they learned how to relieve stress and relax their minds. A capable leader must be relaxed in times of conflict or stress and this exercise has shown them one way to achieve that. It was a blast!
“New Year new leaders” was a common saying for us over the last few weeks. These youthful leaders came up with new goals for the New Year. They discussed their goals at length and explained the route they were going to take in order to get there. Some of their goals were to: make new friends with people in their class, spend more time studying and get better grades, and to volunteer at least once during 2018. These leaders have grown so much over the last few months and we can’t wait to see where the next few months take them. Keep up the good work leaders! ... See MoreSee Less
