Youth Leadership Summer School program

At ISSOS we believe that each student deserves to discover their potential and acquire the skills, confidence and motivation to make things happen and bring about change.

An exciting series of interactive workshops, energetic summer school activities and fun-filled challenges specifically designed to inspire and enable each and every student to uncover their unique abilities, develop greater confidence and master strategies for success in the classroom and beyond.

We recommend that students 15 and over apply for this program as many of the themes covered in the program are aimed at a high level of understanding. 

Youth Leadership

What will it cover?

Our Youth Leadership summer school course gives students the opportunity to discover their own potential by developing interpersonal and leadership skills, increasing their self-confidence and acquiring the motivation and ability to bring about change.
Rather than focusing on any specific school curriculum, this summer school program offers hands-on learning enabling all students, regardless of background, experience or ability level, to get ahead.

  • Self-expression and communication
  • Team-building and small group facilitation skills 
  • Goal-setting and personal motivation 
  • Social responsibility 
  • Personal leadership skills

We want to help students eliminate school stress, while simultaneously showing them ways to express themselves, pursue goals, solve problems, resolve conflicts and bring about positive change.
