MWF Teen Leadership & Empowerment Forums

Posted by:

The Michael Walton Foundation would like to thank our supporting organizations of our Empowerment Forums.  Your dedication to our youth continues to inspire us!

The MWF is hosting four Empowerment Forums for high school students during the 2012/13 school year. Each forum has over 40 dynamic interactive workshops. The workshops focus on career exposure and college prep subjects for the juniors and senior students while enhancing student life skills, leadership abilities and instilling an ethic of civic stewardship are the objectives of the Forums for freshman and sophomore students. This is achieved through a series of interactive workshops designed to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that will enable them to become self-directing, responsible, productive citizens, and contributing member of society.

The goal of the workshops is to further explore career fields, college readiness or to develop student life skills in the areas of:

• self-discovery
• self-confidence
• decision-making
• conflict resolution
• self-expression
• responsibility
• community service
• leadership
• fostering peace
• safety
• wellness
• awareness
• perseverance

Workshops for the underclassmen include topics such as suicide prevention, effects of bullying, volunteerism, violence prevention, community engagement, dangers of distracted driving, cyber-safety awareness, etc.
