The Complete Player Charity Young Leaders Program is a 7 month program where students work collaboratively to discover who they are as individuals, find creative ways to develop leadership skills and serve their community, and engage in workforce awareness experiences.
What Students are Saying
Why After-School Programming?
Northern AA County is home to communities that suffer from food insecurities, youth homelessness, the highest percentages in the county of the residents living under the poverty line, and a large percentage of youth suffering from multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s).
Between 2015 – 2018 there was no increase in after-school mentoring programs for students living in low income communities, which has created an opportunity gap for those students. TCP Youth Empowerment fills that gap.
Our Leadership Philosophy
Our fundamental belief is that all people are leaders and in order to lead others one must effectively lead themself. The TCP Young Leaders program emphasizes the individual students’ development of self-agency through developing their social, emotional and cognitive competencies. Students leave our program with the knowledge, awareness and support to build a strong foundation they can lead from by developing and enhancing their skills in the following areas:
- 21st-century skills – critical thinking & problem solving, creativity, collaboration, and communication
- Social & Emotional Competencies – self-awareness, self-control, social-awareness, and relationship skills
- Cognitive Competencies – self-management, effective decision making, growth mindset, goal setting & achievement
- Life Skills – mindfulness, personal accountability, and grit, among others
