The Results

YMAD Leadership Training is based on 7 values of leadership. During the year the teens learn about leadership and how to make a difference in the world from educators, mentors and other guest speakers. They apply leadership skills in practical ways, such as working with children in local schools to improve their ability to speak English, and participating in humanitarian expeditions to india to work with children in rural schools, helping them learn English and receive needed medical care. The planning, fundraising, and execution of these projects gives the teens hands-on experience in taking responsibility, working as a team, serving others, developing a vision, tackling tough assignments, doing research, inspiring each other, and sticking to their commitments. After the year-long training and expedition, the teens seek ways to use these new skills to make a difference for the rest of their lives.
