Our Teens Leadership Club meeting is a gathering of young minds between the ages of 9 to 19 who are continually nurtured and mentored to effective leadership; leading themselves and others. On Saturday, the 8th of May, the May edition of our teen’s leadership meeting was held.  It was another exciting moment of sharpening the mind of our teens towards becoming great future leaders.

The first session of activities for the day started with the general class divided into three different arms according to the learning ability of each child and school-age; Pacesetters, Achievers, and Trailblazers. The teens were taught and interacted on the topic ‘Creativity and Innovation.’ Highlights of the general lesson include the meaning of creativity and innovation, the relationship between the two concepts, the benefits of the two, ways the teens can boost their creativity and innovation skills, and how as young leaders they can become problem solvers through gainful use of their creative ideas. At the end of the general class, the teens were grouped and engaged in a do-it-yourself, hands-on craft to explore their creative skills, and their ability to think outside the box while ensuring they can collaborate and work effectively as a team.

In the second session of the meeting, our teens were engaged in a spelling fun game; where they attempted to spell various words and make sentences with the words.

Our practical class was held immediately after. The teens participated in the practical classes; grouped in line with their interest. Those for the Media/ICT Group were taught typing; the use of a keyboard in typing and tips on how the trainees can attain proficient high speed in tying. The teens in the Public Speaking Group were taught Debate; how to prepare for and engage effectively in debate. The teens in the Creativity Practical Group were engaged in drama, writing, and artwork practice.

The role of leadership in society is one thing that everyone long for, but nobody can become a true leader by mere wishful thinking. Effective leaders are products of time and process. We must be committed to building the right kind of leaders we wish to see, who can take up leadership roles now or in the nearest future. And it starts now by investing in the life of these young ones.
