YUVA Academy conducts leadership and entrepreneurship course wit social workers

Cohort 5 of YUVA’s Leadership Programme joined by 18 Aspiring Leaders

The cohort 5 of the Certificate in Leadership for Social Change programme started on Saturday, 6 July 2019. The YUVA Academy’s School of Leadership and Development welcomed 18 aspiring leaders, including NGO representatives from various parts of the island. The Certificate in Leadership for Social Change programme is delivered by YUVA Executive Director, Krishna Athal.

This course teaches you critical concepts to help you better understand, operate, and thrive in leadership roles. We challenge you to apply learning using a realistic simulation, based on real-world leadership experiences. We aim to develop your leadership knowledge to become an effective leader in order to foster social change through leadership development. Using interactive activities, including reflexive journals, you develop your own understandings of what constitutes good leadership and how to apply this knowledge in real-life situations.

The School of Leadership and Development assists aspiring leaders to build a character of confidence and clarity and to help themselves and others to do the right things. It is important to inculcate traits that bring about a strong sense of direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about charting out where you need to go to as an individual, as a group, team or organisation; and the whole process is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.

Whether you want to polish your individual leadership skills, have ambitions to grow into leadership roles or are an emerging leader in your organisation, YUVA Academy’s School of Leadership and Development is for you. We enthuse you to be an inspiring voice and not just an echo.
