MAD Organizers–A Civic Leadership Program
Spring of 2012, Youth In Mind had an opportunity to attend Harvard’s Executive Leadership Course and Study under Marshall Ganz. YIM piloted a civic leadership program, where members engaged in a distance learning Fellowship. Fellows spent 10 weeks learning leadership theories, organizing skills, and co-coordinated our 2012 Youth Leadership Academy. Our Fellowship has an emphasis on psychosocial wellness from the unique perspective of mental health activists.
Participants gain deeper awareness on leadership through organizing, how to develop and deliver your public narrative, holding effective teams, and understanding the power of interdependent leadership.
