Growing Leaders overview

18 May 2014

Growing Leaders is a leadership programme for young people.

Growing Leaders can be used to develop a broad range of leadership roles for young people, such as: team captain, prefect, peer leader, coach, manager, sports administrator, sport and recreation official, outdoor recreation leader.


Growing Leaders can be used in a range of settings such as physical education classes, school sports programmes, outdoor education trips, lunchtime and after school recreation activities, sport and recreation clubs, and youth groups.


There are four learning stages throughout the Growing Leaders programme and resources are matched to these: explore, discover, navigate and power. There is a Facilitator's Guide, for the person delivering the programme to young people and learning activities with facilitator's notes and a 'Leader Think-Tank' resource that has lots of leadership information.
