Youth Civic Leadership Institutes engage both university and high school students in activities that develop their leadership skills through workshops and service activities. The Leduc Center hosts two Institutes centered around the 9/11 and MLK Days of Service.
In the fall, the Youth Institute focuses on food insecurity, leadership skills, and learning how to effect change. It culminates with the 9/11 Day of Service and Remembrance at the Sharing the Harvest Community Farm at the Dartmouth YMCA.
In the spring, the Youth Institute also learn leadership skills and how to effect change. The focus of this Institute is on civic engagement. Students participate in a civil rights workshop and visit the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the US Senate. It culminates with the MLK Day of Service, which is an art-in hosted at different locations in the Southcoast.
Institute participants are trained as leaders for both Days of Service events.
This job is open to undergraduate and graduate students.
University students will be responsible for training, mentoring, and facilitating the high school students participating in the Institute.
