Life Skills and Leadership Manual

Youth Volunteer in the Philippines

Lead a wide range of positive youth development activities.

The Life Skills and Leadership Manual presents life skills activities and leadership topics related to all aspects of life, including: succeeding in the workplace, fostering healthy living, and engaging with communities. With this manual, educators can lead a wide range of positive youth development activities, and can learn to integrate life and leadership skills training into their relationships with youth in their communities.

The Life Skills and Leadership Manual was supported in part by USAID (through contributions from USAID/Africa Bureau/Sustainable Development).
