Serve. Lead. Succeed. Metro Atlanta Teen Leadership Program
Pebble Tossers announces new 2020-21 teen leadership program initiatives, milestones and goals.
(Atlanta, GA, July 9, 2020)…Pebble Tossers, Atlanta’s leading youth development nonprofit organization, is launching its Teen Leadership Program (TLP) in August, 2020. In line with the Pebble Tossers mission to empower and equip youth to lead through service, the program provides an opportunity for service-minded teens to cultivate a deeper understanding of themselves and their impact on their community and the world.
The TLP curriculum covers personal and practical life-skills such as self-awareness, self-management, growth-mindset, social awareness, healthy relationship skills, and responsible decision-making skills. The scheduled activities also cover the ways these skills apply within the three tenets of the program: Serve, Lead, Succeed.
The nine-month program includes in-person + virtual meetings, special guest speakers, and a service project that participants will create and implement as a group. The TLP supplements valuable experiences in the lives of these passionate young people and builds the sense of self-esteem and self-efficacy that our world needs in the leaders of tomorrow.
A maximum of 30 rising 7th through 12th graders will be accepted into the program that kicks off on August 24th with a virtual meeting. Throughout the 2020-21 school year, the selected teens will participate in eight (8) meetings, several special events and presentations, and as a group they will create, develop, plan and execute a service project of their own.
“For the past eleven years, Pebble Tossers has engaged youth in service to provide the experiences they need to become leaders in our community,” said Jennifer Guynn, Founder + Executive Director, Pebble Tossers. “Our Teen Leadership Program takes this to the next level as we target fundamental social, emotional and leadership skills teens need to handle the challenges of adulthood.”
