Leadership Program for Teens

Leadership huddle

Our Leadership Program participants (we call them Leadershippers) are alumni who are entering grades 10, 11, and 12. The Leadership Program was started in 2004. Over the last few years it has evolved from a one-year to a two-year to a three-year program, with very specific structure and goals for each year.  More than 70 teens have participated in the Leadership Program since its inception.

The main focus of the first year of the Leadership Program is “Who am I as a person and a learner?”  The second year focus is “Who am I as a teacher and a leader?”, and the third year focus is “Who am I in the broader world?”

The program culminates with each participant teaching, co-teaching, or assisting a TDI class, with administrative duties, or with dorm counseling their last year. In 2019 we had 21 participants in the Leadership Program.
