Building Tomorrow's Leaders
Building Tomorrow’s Leaders is a comprehensive leadership program geared to high school students (also available for grades seven and eight.) The program aims to:
- Empower students to get involved in school and civic organizations.
- Build confidence and strengthen the skills students need to lead others.
- Assist students in developing their personal and professional networks.
- Help students complete a project to meet a school or community need by applying what they have learned.
Each module contains activities that will enhance students’ learning. Activities include a Real Colors temperament assessment, parliamentary procedure practice, mock interviews, and many more hands-on activities within each topic area to achieve a better understanding and increased skill level.
The Building Tomorrow’s Leaders program compliments the North Dakota Choice Ready framework skills and aligns well with the North Dakota content standards in career & technical education, English language arts, library & technology and social studies. The ND Department of Public Instruction partners with NDSU Extension to provide fiscal support to meet needs identified in the area of civic engagement programs.
