Publisher: Syren Book Company
Author: Marlys C. Johnson, Jackie S. Sinykin Donna C. Gillen
Our sociey is full of disenfranchised and disengaged youth who seemingly have few opportunities to develop leadership skills and rise above barriers to success. Weary of people who complain about young people or give lip service to youth engagement, Donna Gillen, Marlys Johnson, and Jackie Sinykin felt compelled to share what they have learned from their rich and varied experiences with young people. If applied mindfully, the practical suggestions in Giving Voice to the Leader Within will allow an entire new generation of leaders to emerge. Based on real situations and actual young people with whom the authors have worked, these ideas and stories amply illustrate the joy and benefits that come from partnering with young people to make a difference in our communities.
