THE PLANETARY GUARDIAN
YOUTH LEADERSHIP 101
Everybody loves young hero*ines, feels inspired with hope. But that is not the idea. The idea is that you (help 4 billion youth) do like them!
Youth Leadership 101
Eric introduces you to essentials and secrets, from FUNdraising and student clubs to media magic, activating adult allies and exciting partnerships.
There’s special focus on action at school, all young people’s daily hangout, setting up HQ, making school awesome, and comments on what approaches can help tackle specific problems, and help youth movements achieve their goals.
We also take a big look at workplaces, adults’ daily hangout, and some key professions. Also, how store, cafe, bar and club owners can make huge contributions – and at family life.
