PARENT & TEEN SERVICES
When Lorraine decided to leave the classroom it was because she saw a gap in leadership skills in high school students. Skills she wanted them to have as they entered their lives, skills she wished she had before leaving home for the first time, before her first professional job, and DEFINITELY before becoming a parent.
Community Teen Group Approach
TEEN LEADERSHIP ROADMAP
This program is designed for anyone over 13 years old who wants to improve their self-confidence, decision-making, communication, and leadership skills. We meet twice a month - first to get the month's activities and then to collaborate and share how it went. The program is designed to give teens opportunities to explore leadership and skills in a way that doesn't involve the consequence of failure. We encourage mistakes as a way to learn.
Your teen will learn to:
Advocate for themselves
Define friendship - knowing who is and isn’t a friend
Know what is and isn’t in their control to change
See others differently
Find opportunities to use their voice and leadership
Build relationships with others

THE LEADERSHIP ACADEMIES
These programs are designed for anyone over 13 years old who wants to improve their communication and leadership skills. This program is intended for participants to learn many leadership skills, however, they need to decide which one is best. Each program is designed to build on the topics leaders face!
All too often, high schools believe they are already 'doing' student leadership, but they are not building programs for all students. Our programming works to support all students in developing leadership skills, regardless of their natural leadership skills or belief that they are leaders.
The program consists of videos, podcasts, reflections, and goal-oriented activities that will improve anyone's ability to grow individually into a better version of themselves.
Individual Teen Coaching Approach
Do you see leadership skills in your teen, do you want them to find ways to use their voice? Would you like Lorraine to work with your child to help them find their leadership strengths? We will work on authentic applications of these skills at home, in school, and with friends. We suggest to start with 2-3 1-hour sessions and build from there.
