Empower Student Leaders Through Online Leadership Development Programs

Student leadership is an important aspect of a child’s education. Participating in online educational development programs allows students to unlock their leadership potential. Our online student leadership training program allows students to engage in a fun way while cultivating important skills that propel students to be active leaders in their communities. Learning the skills of leadership is going to help students be better learners, good friends and people who care about much more than just themselves.

Online Leadership Development Programs for New Leaders

We build a foundation of strong knowledge with the skills and concept of leadership through an online learning development course that is comprehensive for young students. Our online student leadership programs provide students with our 4 C’s Learning Framework that is easy to understand. The 4 C’s have been inspired by Jean Cote and Wade Gilbert’s research into effective sports coaching where they found coaches play a role in influencing their players’ Competence, Confidence, Character and Connectedness – The 4 C’s. The 4 C’s transition smoothly across all student leadership courses that we design and ultimately, learners will walk away with their Competence, Confidence, Character and Connection enhanced.

Not only do we make it easy for students to grow into new leaders, but we also give teachers and educators a step-by-step guide with advice from experienced teachers and the Leaders of Evolution team. Our Young Leaders in Schools – Teacher Intro course will prepare all teachers to deliver an engaging in-class experience and provide students with numerous opportunities to apply their newfound skills and reflect on these experiences. We utilize peer to peer learning and student-driven projects. Encouraging students to have a strong relationship with their mentor affords students to then discuss with their mentor and strengthen the covered material in their online educational leadership development courses. 

The training programs provide an approach that will cater to both the Foundation and Advanced courses. The best bit – all the planning is done by Leaders of Evolution. The educational development course contains instructional videos and the resources to enhance the leadership learning experience of students and the facilitation experience of teachers. Once teachers and educators have completed the course, they will feel empowered to deliver an engaging program with their students and will have access to all of the tools necessary to achieve success.
