Teen Leadership is a program in which students develop leadership, professional, and business skills. They learn to develop a healthy self-concept, healthy relationships, and learn to understand the concept of personal responsibility. Students will develop an understanding of Emotional Intelligence and the skills it measures, which include self-awareness, self-control, self-motivation, and social skills. Students will develop skills in public speaking and communication and an understanding of personal image. They will develop an understanding of the concept of principle-based decision-making and an understanding of the need for vision in goal-setting, personally and professionally.
Students will have the opportunity at each SAVA site to participate, collaborate and plan many school events, including raising awareness of current issues or encouraging school spirit. Members will develop and implement service projects to address needs in their community. Students learn about diversity and acceptance to enable all to find a place where everyone is welcome.
