Events & Workshop Topics
We are teaching young people leadership qualities and public speaking skills. Each member will be able to connect with our guest speakers, we will provide them with opportunities to show their leadership through internships. Each member will have a role at the workshops, and there will be leadership positions open for the project as a whole. We will have leadership committees and board members that will be available to apply for in order for students to show their leadership capabilities and public speaking skills. There are many opportunities for you to join our officer and board of directors because we believe young people can change our community.
Why you should join
The Youth Executive Leadership Program (YELP) is a non profit organization whose program centers around the Houston area, where students learn about leadership skills which include public speaking, various aspects of leading a team or an organization, etc.. Workshops (as part of the organization and partnership organizations) will be available throughout the year and this includes inviting business panels, public speaking workshops, and leadership camps, empowering the young generation to become strong visionaries, speakers and leaders at the end.
This program is available to kids between the ages of 11-18. Houston is such a large dynamic city, however, there aren't many programs focused on building leadership and public speaking skills in this age group and we want to change that! The objective of the organization is to empower the next generation of young leaders with all the necessary skills to enter the real world.
What We Do
Youth Executive Leadership
Project Inspire is an initiative that taps into the minds of middle and high school students throughout the world. We at Youth Executive Leadership Program believe in the importance of understanding and accepting different perspectives, especially in our society today, and we hope this project bring this to light.
Students throughout the world will write their opinions on this topic. The stories, then, will be compiled into a magazine and published. The magazine will be sold and the money collected will be donated to a charity impacting literacy rates. The major objective is to work with the community to create the next generation of leaders. We strive to ensure that all youth, no matter their background, have equal access to career and personal development skills, such as leadership training. Through this project we hope to inspire the next generation leaders to achieve greatness in their futures and create this cross cultural communication amongst the youth in order to grow students minds.
Students will write a short story (200 words) or poem about what they see their future life to be.
Specifically students may write about
Their future career goals
What they see their country to be
Where they expect to live
Specific issues they see being addressed
How school will be conducted
Interesting inventions in the world
An example of a short story may look like this.
Hello my name is Isabel J. and I live in Houston, Texas in the United States of America. In the future, I would like to become an astronomer as I live next to the largest space program in the United States, and many people in the city of Houston are astronomers. I expect my city of Houston, Texas to be extremely technologically advanced with inventions like self driving cars and glass metros to be present throughout the city.I believe that the school will be conducted online as will everything in the city, where teachers video call a class of students. I would like to live in France so I am able to work for the European Space Agency and study stars and other galaxies, and create a world space agency that is able to explore far areas. I also believe that in the future people would have landed on Mars and we will have moved on to trying to land on Jupiter!
