Detailed Description:
The Department of Leadership Studies in SOLES is hiring a lecturer to teach LEAD 523 - Youth and Leadership in the Spring 2023 term.

This course focuses on the importance of and the most effective methods for developing youth leadership knowledge, skills, and capacities. For the purposes of this course, youth are considered to range from early elementary grades all the way through college. With an early focus on the academic literature on youth development theory and leadership theory, the course builds a solid foundation of knowledge for adults who work with youth leaders. The course focuses on a contextual approach to leadership for youths by enabling the acquisition of various “tools” that match specific contexts in their leadership practice. One of the key learning concepts of this course is the ability to break down complex leadership theories and practices that adults learn into manageable and age-specific levels for youths. The course also examines various youth leadership development programs throughout the world, the various issues that adults face in providing youth leadership development opportunities, the impact of youth leadership development on organizations, and the ways in which to increase diversity in youth leadership groups. While founded in academic literature and writing, the course primarily provides an opportunity for participants to put academic learning into real world contexts. This is accomplished through a final project that centers on the development of youth leadership development programs and projects.
