By Mohamed Nabieu, Child Rescue Centre Director
At the Child Rescue Centre, I have a "Young Leaders Club" that is known as the YLC. This club has six top identified young teens at the CRC that we do leadership together. These kids are the budding or emerging leaders, I have tagged them, and we are working together to develop our God's given potentials. Normally, We meet two to three times in a month (Saturdays/Sundays). We started with a book titled "Building Everyday Leadership in All Teens." It is written by Mariam G. Macgregor. This book is really good for teenagers that have passion for leadership. It talks about promoting attitudes and actions for respect and success. The book can also be called "Everyday Leadership."
This book contains relevant topics such as: what leadership means to me, the leaders in my life, what to look for in a leader, leaders and followers, power play, communicating with style, active listening skills, my values, doing the right thing, choosing tolerance, strength in numbers (team work), turning conflict into cooperation, all for one and one for all, taking chances, thinking creatively, having my voice heard, motivating the team, showing appreciation, celebrating success and more.
Kadie, Jitta, Aminata, Lansana and Saidu are studying leadership under the tutelage of CRC Director Mohamed Nabieu.
