A Teen’s Guide to Leadership: 3 Steps to Make You a Great Leader
How to Teach Kids Leadership Skills - Learning Liftoff
This paper describes a qualitative evaluation of a small-scale program aiming to improve health information literacy, leadership skills, and interest in health careers among high school students in a low-income, primarily minority community. Graduates participated in semi-structured interviews, transcripts of which were coded with a combination of objectives-driven and data-driven categories. The program had a positive impact on the participants' health information competency, leadership skills, academic orientation, and interest in health careers. Program enablers included a supportive network of adults, novel experiences, and strong mentorship. The study suggests that health information can provide a powerful context for enabling disadvantaged students' community engagement and academic success. Thirty-six percent of US adults have limited health literacy, which puts them at risk for underuse of preventative care, suboptimal health-related decisions, and poorer health [ 1 ].

Being a teenager is a very difficult time. There are amazing opportunities on offer but young teens can fail to take advantage of them, whether that be performing well in class, participating in team sports or joining new groups. Often the core reason can be a fear of failure and looking silly or stupid in front of their friends.
