What Is Student Leader Weekend?
Student Leader Weekend is a focused time of training and equipping student leaders with the tools they need to be great leaders, build a great team, and run a great Intense Impact trip. Students will spend personal and intentional time with LeaderTreks staff as they are guided through the process of preparing for their trip.
Why Do We Require This Weekend For Intense Impact?
LeaderTreks youth ministry believes that in order for leadership to be transformational, you need both principles and experience. Without the knowledge of leadership principles, you are unable to evaluate and learn from the experience. Student Leader Weekend provides your students with the opportunity to interactively learn important leadership principles that they can then apply to their leadership experience.
Over the course of the weekend, students will:
- Create a Blueprint – used to help students strategically plan the process of leading an Intense Impact trip
- Understand their leadership role
- Find out their leadership style
- Set goals and expectations
- Learn team building skills
What Will The Results Be?
Clarity – You and your students will better understand the student leader role and the expectations they have in challenging, leading, and developing their team on their LeaderTreks youth ministry trip.
Confidence – You and your students will leave Student Leader Weekend confident in how to best use the months leading up to your trip to prepare your team for a week of challenge and leadership development.
Vision – You and your students will walk away with clear understand of what they need to do, who they need to be, and how they are going to achieve the goals they have for the development of their team.
For 2018 summer trips Student Leader Weekend is February 9-11, 2018
