LeaderKids – Program Planning and Implementation

Contact: Mariem Harris

Mentor: Jerry Roberson

Project Description: Thanks to feedback from students, counselors, parents and mentors over the past 10 years, we are always trying to enhance the LeaderKids program. To ensure that this is more than a “show and tell” program, this year we are asking for help from the LFW Class of 2006 to more fully develop our curriculum of leadership skills training – to encourage individual participation, as well as group process. We need writers, teachers, trainers, and coaches who can be objective observers and document key learning experiences (what works well? what needs improvement? how do students/mentors/guest speakers interact?). We also would like some creative party planners to plan and host the closing party for students and alumni, as a celebration of their achievements this year.

Project Assignment

  • Establish a consistent curriculum of leadership skills training throughout the year.
  • Plan and host the annual closing party for students and alumni – scheduled for April 4, at Tarrant County College, South Campus
