On the Ground - Empowerment and Leadership's Core Values

Njoli Brown

Welcome to the Empowerment Blog. For our purposes empowerment will be defined as an action which "makes (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights."

This work is a practice in compassion and self-reflection. It requires as much dedication to bettering ourselves as it does to the betterment of the youths and communities we work with. Working with the Leadership Empowerment Cohort is an opportunity to share best practices, to find opportunities for collaboration, to voice your need for support and to highlight the bright moments that occur day to day.

The hope is that this blog and our meetings will act as portals to connect you with other facilitators who are finding new ways to imbue their Young Men's/Young Women's Groups, Peer Mediation or Student Unions, In Class Enrichment units, Student Government, Advisory, and academic clubs with Leadership Core Values.
