La Jolla Country Day School – Student Voice Matters

January 3, 2023


As students learn lessons from the Owning Up curriculum, young people will be seeking leadership roles in new and innovative ways. The driving question of this session is – how do adults interact with students to bring dignity into their understanding of leadership and empower them to be influential members of their communities?

Topics covered:

Defining leadership outside of formal roles
Showing the difference between being bossy and leadership
Understanding how young peoples’ experiences with people in authority influence their own leadership styles
Creating a feeling of belonging in the group so people feel their contribution is valued
Managing conflicts as a leader
Learning to advocate and work together (both adults and young people)
