Life Skills and Leadership Manual
Publisher Peace Corps
Pages 400
5.8 MB
The Life Skills and Leadership Manual is designed to be used by Peace Corps Volunteers and their counterparts who work with youth worldwide to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes integral to three Youth in Development sector competencies: 1. Support healthy lifestyles and prepare youth for family life; 2. Prepare youth for the world of work; and 3. Engage youth as active citizens. While a particular project may focus on only one or two of these sector competencies, the life skills and leadership topics relate to all aspects of life, including: succeeding in the workplace, fostering healthy living, and engaging with communities. With this manual, Volunteers leading a wide range of positive youth development activities in any sector can learn to integrate life and leadership skills training into their relationships with youth in their communities. Once Volunteers and staff members are familiar with the concepts introduced in the manual, they will be able to see consistency with other important principles and practices of the Peace Corps’ approach to programming and training in the Youth in Development sector. These include life skills indicators and tracking tools for monitoring, reporting, and evaluating outcomes of youth training activities.
The Life Skills and Leadership Training Package and this accompanying manual are designed to address the Peace Corps Youth in Development core skills development for youth. The concepts and learning objectives were outlined by Ambet Yangco, youth sector manager for PC/Philippines; Peace Corps/Washington Youth in Development Specialists Katie Green and Jim Russell; and Tanya Gipson-Nahman, chief of the Program Support Unit in the Office of Overseas Programming and Training Support. It was written through a contract with The Firefly Group of Guilford, Vermont, coordinated by Russell. Field reviews and input came from the following posts: PC/Ecuador, PC/Morocco, PC/Paraguay, PC/Peru, PC/Philippines, PC/Tunisia. The Peace Corps expresses its gratitude to all who contributed to this important skills development resource for Volunteers and their counterparts and the youth they serve
