Heart-Centered Youth Leaders
A young person’s formative years play an important part in their personal development.
We believe strongly in strengthening the inner and outer self of youth so that they are able to participate in society and also give back to the community.
One way that we support young people in their growth is by offering them the opportunity to develop skills and discover their talents while also working on projects and activities that promotes their own personal and professional development.
What is a HCYL?
Heart-Centered Youth Leaders is our community of youth volunteers between the ages of 13-17, where they will work on three main characteristics:
Grow your skills
Commitment to personal and professional growth
Project planning and execution
Help the Community
How do I become a Heart-Centered Youth Leader?
Your journey to becoming a Heart-Centered Impact Coach starts with you completing introductory courses and training.
As a Heart-Centered Impact Coach, you connect with youth during our Impact Activities, inspire positive decision-making, and create a lasting impact.
Before you get started, you will get the opportunity to learn more about yourself and your abilities as well as develop the attitude and skills to be able to guide and support youth during our activities.
Here is how to get started:
The Heart-Centered Youth Leaders Trajectory is divided in three PHASES:
-Participate in an intake
-Participate in the 2-part introductory course (I AM)-
1. Participate in 2 skills development courses (such as project management and 'passions and dreams')
2. Volunteering & Project Planning and Execution (come up with fun and empowering projects for your community).
3. Participate in a 4-day personal leadership seminar (Teen Insight I).
1. Get installed as a HCYL
2. Committed to be an active HCYL (Ambassador)
As a Heart-Centered Youth Leader, we expect that you:
Assist during our Impact Activities for a minimum of 12 hours during a year.
Follow (peer) coaching sessions and evaluation moments
Twice a year we provide the introductory course on Heart-Centered Leadership ‘I Am’. This course is developed through the perspectives of the following questions:
-Who am I?
-Why am I here? (What is my purpose)
-Where do I see myself in the future and what is my path?
-How do I identify my values and apply them generally in my life?
