Since our work with KidLead goes all over the world and for various religions, we keep our faith content on this site. Here are PowerPoint presentations and a few resoruces that might interest you. Feel free to use them as you need (copying permitted). You can find more articles with a faith element on this website by clicking on the KidLead/LeadYoung tab. My BIG mission is young leader identifying and developing, so please check out the KidLead website for more info: www.kidlead.com. I'd appreciate your help knowing who I should talk to in your network, who might be interested in concentrated, active-learning, young leader training curriculum. It would mean a lot if you'd connect me with those people or just send info so I can contact them and introduce our work. We have a faithbased version for churches and Christians schools and character-based for public and private schools. LeadNow is powerful and unique; not off-the-shelf, requiring a 1-day certification to use. LeadWell is our teen program, along with "LeadYoung," the first concentrated, leadership book just for young leaders. Thanks again for your ministry and for attending one or more of my workshops. It was an honor to serve you. Keep up your great ministry! You're a VIP.
