Youth Leadership Co-Op

The State-Certified Youth Leadership Program recognizes a student’s mastery and demonstration of leadership skills valued by employers, communities, and organizations.

The program requires:

  • Reinforcement of leadership skills in the form of the four Cs (collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking skills) and service hours with a community or employer mentor
  • A minimum 90 work hours accumulated over the course of high school
  • School coordination by a DPI-licensed teacher

Examples of how to implement locally:

  • Through a career and technical student organization
  • Through a leadership course or student retreat that focuses on leadership skills
  • Through volunteer work for a local nonprofit organization or company
