Young Team Builders
It's Never Too Early To Start Changing The World
Back in the last century (1995), I purchased a book from Project Adventure: Youth Leadership In Action: A Guide to Cooperative Games and Group Activities Written by and for Youth Leaders. It was the beginning of something I thought would grow and thrive into other publications - there is so much out there to share.
I love this book. It came from the minds, hearts and spirits of amazing young people ready to take on leading (and facilitating) activities that had the potential to change the world.
The Preface of the book includes this, "exciting thing currently happening across the United States and in other places around the world: Teachers, parents and other community leaders are recognizing that young people are more than tomorrows leaders - they are leaders today, capable of being valuable resources in schools and communities."
This is still very true today - proven over the last 20 years through the exponential growth of incredible high school leadership and adventure education programs providing first-hand experiences for those with the inclination to jump into the unknown and make a difference.
I was hoping for more, "Youth Leadership In Action" - but only the one publication made it. Well, that was then, this is now. Young leaders of today and tomorrow, lets go for another beginning, again! This is your space to "teach what you know" to the world. We can learn from you and pass it on. Let's get started.....
