Leadership is often considered a primary skill of successful people. Unlike specific content knowledge taught in a traditional educational experience that has little practical application in future employment, leadership competencies and learned behaviors are useful to everyone no matter what job a person pursues.
Because iLead 21 emphasizes growth and development more than achievements and success, students develop the mindset that mistakes and setbacks often create the greatest opportunities for personal improvement; they learn how to convert these setbacks into positive outcomes.
This program is not about memorizing information or keeping up with a pacing guide. Rather, it is a practical experience in which people learn about, practice, and develop leadership skills and tools (collaboration, problem solving, etc.) that will prepare them for higher education, careers, and life.
This option is for people who are interested in using iLead 21 with a group of students before, after, or within the school day.
Each iLead team would typically have 5 - 18 students and 1 iCoach (this could be any adult who is comfortable working on hands-on, student-directed projects, so it does NOT need to be a certified teacher).
Select this option if you are interested in using iLead 21 with a cohort of home schooled kids.
Ideally, iLead 21 should be used with a group of no less than 5 and no more than 18 people, guided by one iCoach (adult) who is comfortable working on hands-on, student-directed projects.
Select this option if you are interested in using iLead 21 as part of your social, community, religious, or other organization (Boy/Girl Scouts, YMCA, Summer Camp, etc.).
This option is for people who would like to be a part of the iLead 21 leadership experience, but who are not part of a larger organization or group. Adults over 18 may select this option for themselves, and parents wishing to have one or more of their children complete iLead 21 should select this option.
