Simply put, leadership development is an effort (hopefully, planned in nature) that enhances the learner’s capacity to lead people. Very simply put, leading is setting direction and guiding others to follow that direction. A critical skill for leaders is the ability to manage their own learning.

As designed, the implementation of ASPIRA’s Youth Development Program (YDP) will be made through the Aspira Clubs. As an Aspira Club, counselor you will have to facilitate the learning process of our Aspirantes. This curriculum is structured to assist this process. A collection of web resources is provided to enhance your knowledge about youth leadership development. Please use these resources to enhance the training process.
