What is goLEAD?
goLEAD (generationOn Leadership, Education, and Development program) is generationOn’s signature youth leadership training. It empowers youth to grow as leaders through service. Participants develop critical leadership skills while planning a capstone service project, which is the culmination of the goLEAD Institute. The curriculum, which was originally developed by the Center for Creative Leadership and has since been revised by youth leadership professionals and long time Facilitators, provides opportunities for leadership skill building, personal and group reflection, and service-learning. Relaunched in 2012 with the name goLEAD, the program was originally launched in 1996 and was called PYLI.
The pilot re-launch of goLEAD is made possible with generous support from the Alcoa Foundation.
