Signature Project Feature: Empowerment Zone Leadership


Gerald Best, Andrea Ledbetter, Nancy Seidler, Briana Stiner, & Maurice Walker

This project team developed a five week after-school program to be administered to children in grades 4-6 that will introduce the basics of leadership.  Each hour long session focuses on a different leadership topic including what “leadership” is and what characteristics are necessary to be an effective and trustworthy leader in their community.  Participants will be chosen by the Empowerment Zone (EZ) based on the child’s “Leadership Potential”.  Sessions are planned to be fun and interactive.
