Fun Leadership Activities for Teens
Joining a group like student council, your church youth group, or your local 4H will not only allow you to learn some new things and make friends, but will avail you of the opportunity to become a leader within the group. Those types of groups are run by the youths. Whether you want to actually run for President or maybe something a little less stressful like Secretary, acting as leadership within a group is a good way to get experience for future working roles.
Another good way to learn about leadership is through a part time job or a business associated group like Junior Achievement.
Finally, another way to learn to be a leader is to actually lead someone else. Summer camps are always looking for great counselors, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America groups are always looking for volunteers, and you could also be a mentor to someone younger than yourself.
