What does it mean to be a leader? How does someone “become” one? What characteristics do good leaders have? Is that something you want to be?
Maybe you’re already a leader in your school or your community and you want to develop your skills. Maybe you haven’t ever had a leadership role, but you’re curious and want to be prepared for the future. Maybe you just want to enhance your interpersonal skills. Whatever your role, plans, or skill level, there is a place for you in the Conflict Center’s YOUth Leadership Academy!
At the YOUth Leadership Academy, you will learn skills for better communication and how to find the opportunities for learning and growth that come from conflict. We will also build skills around managing stress and regulating our own emotions. Great leaders are those who are good at communicating with themselves as well as with others!

We can’t wait to see you there!
