The ISTA™ Young Creative Leadership Programme
The ISTA™ Young Creative Leadership Programme is an opportunity for high school students to develop their creative leadership skills.
Students develop their skills through a series of reflective tasks, mentoring and attendance at a middle school festival in a leadership role. The student then plans how this leadership experience will be implemented in their own community.
This is a powerful service learning opportunity and can be used as part of other leadership initiatives.
