The Early Leadership Toolkit is a set of curriculum and tools that facilitators and educators can use to design leadership development programs that meet the needs of the young people. Full of dynamic experiential learning exercises and though-provoking discussion questions, the Toolkit curriculum consists of 20 different leadership topics. Each topic has a facilitator outline that pairs activity and reflection with content to meet a diversity of learners’ needs.
The modules can be mixed and matched to design a program that is anywhere from a half-day in length to a week-long retreat to a semester long program. Past users have included university student development staff, school administrators, teachers, non-profit staff, and outdoor learning program staff. The Toolkit has been used all around the world with participants from middle-school age to university age and by facilitators with a range of experience.

When I got the opportunity to attend the Training-of -Trainers session at CCL headquarters in Greensboro in the use of the Early Leadership Toolkit, I had no idea how it would change my life and the lives of people in my community. Two years later, I have used the toolkit in over 20 different workshops, including 2 full summer camps for high school students. I have used the ideas contained in the toolkit to give scores of talks of leadership, goal setting, values and team dynamics. I have even adapted stories from the Global Wisdom Explorer as bedtime stories to my kids!”
