Leading the Way: Youth Leadership Guide was developed to improve youth leadership skills and to encourage participation in physical activity. This resource supports young people in developing and enhancing the skills they need to successfully plan, organize, and implement their own programs. Leading the Way can help young people do the following:
  • Develop positive attitudes toward youth leadership, cooperation, and participation in intramural sports and in health-promoting school and recreation activities
  • Learn how to plan, organize, and operate their own programs with increasing autonomy and pride
  • Develop individual and cooperative leadership skills through participation in organized leadership groups
  • Strengthen skills such as teamwork, trust building, responsibility, decision making, and problem solving
  • Develop lifelong skills through leadership training that will be beneficial in all areas of their lives
Who should use Leading the Way? This handbook is designed for anyone who is developing leaders among children or young people in a school or community setting:
  • Elementary teachers can use Leading the Way to facilitate students' first leadership roles, whether in a mentoring program, for a special event, or for taking on administrative tasks.
  • Secondary teachers and students can use Leading the Way to plan and implement both credit and noncredit courses and to supplement existing courses in their schools.
  • Recreation and community youth group leaders can use Leading the Way to provide ideas and methodologies to develop and implement a youth-run program.
  • Youth leaders can use Leading the Way as a tool to help them develop the skills needed to work effectively with their peers in a variety of school and community contexts (student council, intramural sports, camp counseling roles, etc.).
