What characteristics define a student leader? Strong communication; analytical prowess; adaptability? Creating a common definition for “student leadership” would be a laborious task! Incontrovertible though is the fact that many schools today encourage students to develop their leadership capacities in addition to their academic base.
At Compass Education, we believe that student empowerment is integral to creating positive change in our world. Thus, with our student leadership resources and workshops we strive to educate students of the values of sustainability by equipping them with language and systems thinking tools they can begin to use now to direct sustainable community initiatives.
Whether you’re interested in dissecting global issues, planning service projects or greening your school, we invite you to try our student leadership resources in your school! With tools like the Sustainability Compass, Pyramid Lite and the Amoeba, today’s learners can become strong leaders of sustainable change in their communities. Check out Youth Leadership Training page to learn more about our youth empowerment programmes and feel free to contact us with any questions about our tools and programs.
