In August the Youth Engagement STREAM Leadership (YeS-L) Program inspires and empowers 12 – 15 year olds with ADHD and learning disabilities to practice and share their skills to motivate and activate others.
Seven sessions August 9th – 30th, Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:30 – 8:30 pm present activities that recognize individual strengths and build self-management, emotional IQ, self-advocacy and leadership skills.
Focusing on unique personal strengths, YeS-L Program participants are encouraged in activities that build self-management, emotional IQ, self-advocacy and leadership skills. Youth also learn how to facilitate the same growth in younger youth who experience learning disabilities or ADHD.
In seven evening sessions, held twice weekly, youth will experience the following:
• Enables youth to use positive messages and experiences about learning and learning disabilities to inspire, motivate and activate others.
• Provides opportunities for youth with leadership potential to develop and practice their skills.
• Creates future community leaders who are able to help build a more supportive and empathetic environment for youth with learning disabilities.
