LEAD: Leadership Education and Advocacy Development Program
The Education and Training Program of DAKILA
To lead is to show the way; to guide or to direct; to serve as a route; to be a channel; and to inspire the conduct. The definition of the word itself is the essence of this program. The Leadership Education and Advocacy Development (LEAD) Program consists of education discussions, creative workshops and skills training. At the heart of these three aspects of the program is the integration of core values that define heroism.
The LEAD project is a venue for today’s generation to come out of their boxes towards awareness, education and involvement. The program will not limit itself to the confines of traditional methods of social awakening. At the same time, the program will not dictate a course of action for its public to follow. What the program will provide are opportunities for learning of skills and tools that may help them in analysis and practical engagement. The process of arriving at a certain output will not follow rules or formulas to determine one’s path to enlightenment. What it will bring about is the opportunity for the youth to know what is going on beyond their boxes, make their own stands, form their own beliefs and hopefully, inspire them to get involved in their own way.
The LEAD Program is a learning opportunity to develop their creativity, skills and tools for analysis.
It is essentially designed to provide a platform for today’s youth to question, to be critical, and to learn so that they can make informed choices for their own future.
