Leadership training for high school students: any advice?

Hey guys! I'm trying to find ways to improve my leadership skills during high school. Are there any conferences or workshops you've attended which really helped you out? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Hey there! It's terrific that you're looking to build your leadership skills during high school. I have a couple of recommendations for you that I've seen benefit high school students in developing their leadership abilities.

1. HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership): This is a popular and well-regarded leadership conference for sophomores. Throughout the conference, you'll participate in workshops, hear guest speakers, and engage in group activities to enhance your leadership and personal growth.

2. RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards): Another excellent option, RYLA is a leadership program designed by Rotary Club specifically for high school students. The program typically involves attending a weekend-long conference that covers topics like goal-setting, ethics, problem-solving, and communication.

3. School Clubs & Student Government: Getting involved in clubs and student government at your school can also help you develop leadership skills. As you gain experience and demonstrate a commitment, you'll likely have opportunities to take on leadership positions and responsibility.

4. Community Service/Volunteering: Seek out local nonprofits or community service organizations where you can take an active role in organizing events or leading projects. You'll not only gain leadership experience but also make a meaningful contribution to your community.

Remember, there's no one-size-fits-all approach to leadership development. Try attending conferences, participating in school and community activities, and exploring opportunities that genuinely interest you. This way, you'll naturally develop your leadership skills while also making the most of your high school years. Good luck!
