High School Heroic Leaders Workshop

We need less bystanders and more heroic leaders in Flint and Genesee County!

Are you a high school student from Flint or Genesee County? We need more heroic leaders to help us train middle school and other high school students and on how to be heroic leaders during the 2016-17 school year!

Join GEARup2LEAD for two days of Bystander Effect and Growth Mindset training on June 16 and June 17, 2016 at Flint Powers Catholic High School.

This training has proven to be both engaging and purposeful for community leaders, teachers, counselors, and administrators throughout Genesee County. It is now time to get our future heroic leaders involved!

You will be trained on how to use the Heroic Imagination Project Bystander Module to help build a heroic culture.

Heroic cultures are cultures where everyone sees themselves as heroic leaders and are not bystanders when problems arise.

At the end of the session, you will be given the currciulum module, companion materials, and other resources to help you be a heroic leader and train others!

Being a Bystander is Boring...Being a Heroic Leader is Exciting!
