Building Blocks of Leadership
Building Blocks of Leadership is a series of mini-lessons geared towards developing leadership skills in youth. These lessons are 20-30 minutes in length and can be incorporated into existing programs such as day camps, 4-H meetings, program area workshops, and afterschool programming.

Designed for grades 6-8, Building Blocks of Leadership can be adapted to meet the needs of a variety of youth audiences, settings, and experience levels of youth.

Lesson 1 What is a leader?
Lesson 2 Learning your strengths
Lesson 3 Communication is key
Lesson 4 Advocating for your ideas
Lesson 5 Thinking outside the box

Each lesson was created to take 20-30 minutes with a group of approximately twenty youth in grades 6-8. Each lesson plan follows the 4-H Experiential Learning Model of Do, Reflect, Apply, with the intent that youth will participate in an activity, share about their experience, and then leave the lesson knowing how to apply the content learned to their daily lives.
