If you use any of the leadership materials I’ve written or you work with youth leaders, you probably visited my old site, Youthleadership.com, at least once. Much of the information from that site can be found here, except for the lists of youth leadership opportunities, professional development, and organizations/websites. While I know how much people appreciated having all that information in one spot, those pages were very difficult to keep updated. It’s amazing how often established organizations change websites, physical addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and staff!
Because I also write fiction for savvy, literary kid readers and young adults, I chose to streamline the content from youthleadership.com to combine it with this other area of my professional life. My blog will cover these topics – youth leadership and middle grade/young adult fiction – as well as parenting, the social politics of kids, tweens, and teens, and other topics relevant to raising leaders, raising readers, and raising kids.
As always, if you have specific questions about youth leadership, working with youth, designing a leadership program, and inspiring the next generation of leaders, or writing for kids and teens, feel free to email or call me directly.
