WANT to bring out the leader in your child? Have you done everything to ensure your children are equipped with the skills, knowledge and network that can give them a headstart in life?

Then consider the Leaderonomics series of youth leadership camps for teenagers.

With the theme “Driving It Out, Doing the Extreme” (DIODE), these camps are centred on building a solid foundation to address issues in the different life stages of a youth.

Leaderonomics is a social enterprise that brings together business leaders, leadership experts and other talent development gurus to facilitate leadership growth.

All DIODE camps are based on the philosophy of action learning, where participants learn via experiencing instead of the typical classroom setting.

DIODE School Leaver’s Camp (May 10-16): The most critical, formative stages of a person’s life begin upon reaching the ages of 17 to 19.

Hence, it is crucial to construct and ground positive value systems during this period.

This camp focuses on issues that youth face as they grow into young adults, including making difficult choices that drive their career paths and learning to be more self-motivated.

Participants are taught the building blocks of a career and get a chance to network with CEOs and leaders.
