“Students that were trained in Take the Lead!® have become more mature. The leadership skills they learned and practiced during the Take the Lead!® program have transferred to everyday school life”
Take the Lead!® is a program focused on fostering leadership skills in youth aged 11-14. Our youth know how to play best! Utilizing Take the Lead!® resources and training, youth can practice leading active play opportunities, providing more physical activity opportunities for their peers. Because of Take the Lead!® training, SPRA is confident that these same youth will later draw upon these skills as they reinvest in our communities.
If you want to host a Take the Lead! Leadership Coach workshop or Youth Leader training, please complete the online Workshop Request Form.
Any school or organization that wishes to increase time dedicated to active play, decrease instances of negative behaviour, and that provides services to youth ages 11-14.
These Youth Have Taken the Lead!
