Leadership for Life is Ireland’s only evidence-based, accredited Youth Leadership programme for under 18 year olds. The programme empowers young people with leadership capabilities to reach their full potential while allowing them to learn, practice and develop the core soft skills they will need in their future lives.
The programme is running in secondary schools across the country and is a great fit for transition year and leaving certificate applied programmes. It can be delivered by teachers to the students in the school. Foróige provides facilitator training online over one and a half days. Teachers are trained in every aspect of the programme and will be confident in delivering the programme to a group of students.
We have been receiving excellent feedback on how much the students and teachers are engaging in Leadership for Life:
"This is a great programme and is a great way to teach the soft skills & personal development that young people often miss from academics. This is a brilliant, well thought out programme that I think more schools would use if they knew about it" Facilitator, St.Louis College, Mayo
