AIL has the goal to develop the next generation of young leaders both male and female. Boys are encouraged to develop leadership and social skills from an early age. AIL provides training in human rights, women’s rights, leadership, peace, democracy, good citizenship and other capacity building topics.
AIL’s leadership training takes place in two ways. AIL holds in-depth leadership workshops and also integrates the teaching of leadership into every workshop and every class at AIL centers. So far in 2021, 122 people have attended leadership workshops. AIL also supports a special 2 year leadership course for 30 students (15 boys) at the Yacoobi high schools.
Boys gain leadership skills through classes at Learning Centers including the boys only MBK computer center and the street children facility.
Leadership workshops include topics such as what makes a good leader, management, listening skills, self- confidence, public-speaking, building good relationships, politics, democracy and peace. In the centers, leadership concepts are taught by teachers who have taken the AIL leadership workshops. AIL’s Leadership training seeks to help boys and girls understand that anyone can be a leader and to enhance the participants’ ability to take a variety of leadership roles in their lives and community stressing the democratic core values of liberty- personal, political, economic freedom, common good, justice and equality.
