**URGENT NEED** Coach Teens to Change their World: Become a YELLS Leadership Coach

Our YELLS teens dreamt and created their own community garden last year. What will you help them achieve as a Leadership Coach in 2012?


Serve as a YELLS Leadership Coach and work directly with our high school youth as a guide and resource as they implement youth-led service projects and leadership workshops. We're looking for adults to serve as one of two types of Leadership Coaches:

  • Service Project Coaches guide our teens as they develop major community service projects (projects address literacy, the environment, self-esteem through the arts, tolerance through a community dinner, and community building).

  • CEO Coaches serve as a support and resource as our high school youth plan and lead weekly workshops focused on leadership and character development.

The commitment begins with a Leadership Coach Orientation and involves attendance at two - four scheduled work sessions, as well as follow-up communication with our youth. Leadership Coach Orientation will take place on Saturday, January 14 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Orientation will both clarify Coach expectations as well as allow Coaches to begin working with our high school youth during a planning session. We hope you will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend with us in service.

If you are interested in serving as a YELLS Leadership Coach, please contact YELLS Executive Director at LauraTKeefe@gmail.com for more details.
