KEY LEADER SUMMARY NOVAK, NAPERVILLE NORTH HIGH SCHOOL
Fellow Key Clubbers, Key Leader is an unforgettable leadership program for today's young leaders. At Key Leader, we delved into the most pertinent lesson of leadership— “Service Leadership” that is derived from helping others succeed. Through large and small group workshops, discussions and teambuilding activities over the course of the weekend, we had opportunities to learn leadership skills that will help us improve our schools, communities, and world. While exploring leadership in a whole new way, participants made amazing new friends and had experiences they will never forget. Some highlights of the weekend included: Introduction Activities, Small -Group Projects, Low Ropes Team Building, Evening Camp Fires, and Interactive Training Sessions developed around Integrity, Growth, Respect, Community, and Excellence. Personally, I know this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. The skills I took home after the weekend were powerfully influential upon me. I can apply them to not only Key Club, but any other group I am a part of. I see these tools being useful through High School, College, and eventually the workforce. Moreover, I left Key Leader with forty friends I felt as though I had known for a lifetime, most of which I had never met before. The bonds I made with other kids cannot be described in words. By Sunday I had made seemingly tangible connections with so many students, whom I hope to remain friends with for years to come. With an altered view of leadership and a plethora of new friendshipsmy best advice is to attend a Key Leader Weekend. You will not regret it!
Yours in Service,
