As a part of Women LEAD's flagship program, LEAD Course,  LEADers (LEAD Course participants) “pay it forward” by applying the knowledge and skills they gained to empower adolescent girls and boys by investing 300+ hours in creating change as they co-lead a four-month School Leadership Program (SLP).

The 2022/23 School Leadership Program  (SLP) started with a three-day orientation session for our 26 LEADers from 2nd to 5th November 2022. The orientation focused on approaching school management and presenting orientation sessions among students, application screening, interviewing participants, selection and onboarding participants to the program, etc.

Our 26 LEADers in pairs implemented SLP in 13 schools in Kathmandu from December 2022 to February 2023, and 224 (adolescent girls and boys aged 13-15) SLP participants graduated.

Over 3 months, our LEADers, in their assigned pairs, led ten sessions on various topics among students of class 9, such as - Goal Setting, Time Management, Team Work, Effective Learning, Bullying, and Civic Engagement. 

Hear from some of our SLP Participants and LEADers :

“SLP was a golden opportunity to learn some important skills and knowledge. I am confident to become successful because of the knowledge I gained from this program.”  - Anuj, SLP participant.

“I applied for SLP to know more about myself and build my confidence as I used to be very shy about maintaining eye contact while speaking. I feel I am active and have started participating in my school's sports and can speak in the public maintaining eye contact.” - Prastika,  SLP participant.

“After SLP, I can now openly accept my gender identity.”- One of the SLP participants.

“Changes after SLP that I found in myself is that I have become respectful of others' decision and also it has boosted my confidence plus made me clear about my goals.” - Jasu, SLP participant.

“I applied for SLP to improve my public speaking and confidence and to learn new things, and in the end, the results were very good. SLP met my expectation, I am more confident now, I am not shy to speak in public and I learned many more new things.”- Salina SLP Participant

On 8th July, Women LEAD organized the graduation ceremony of its two long-term flagship programs, the LEAD Course and the YWPLI, along with a symposium. The representatives from various schools where our LEAD course participants conducted their SLP joined the session. They were presented with certificates and tokens of appreciation from Women LEAD.
