ICON Youth Leadership Corps: What Is It?


This is what I was really excited about. I want you to get excited too. ICON Youth Leadership Corps is an up-and-coming youth program aimed at kids ages 5-18 who want to become better people and better leaders! It's different from other youth groups in that you get to focus on what YOU want to be better at. Not at what "they" think you should be good at.

We are going to launch in January of next year and we need your help. Kids will advance through 3 stages based on age. At the beginning, there is a broad range of Milestones that they will participate in. As they move through each stage, their focus shifts into a few more specific milestones and they will complete projects and research in those chosen fields

The 3 age groups are as follows

5-9: Dreamers
10-13: Manifesters.
14-18: Visionaries

We have selected over 300 milestones kids can choose from and we need help creating the curriculum for the milestones. If I know you have a talent, I've probably already written your name down. So you should shoot me an email so I can send you the template to fill out. Right now there are 5 main categories of Milestones. They are physical, emotional, global, spiritual, and mental. Each category contains the specific areas of fun! 

Examples of Physical milestones would be such things as archery, kayaking, golf, football, snow sports, weight lifting, rock climbing, running etc.

Examples of Emotional Milestones are authenticity, body image, choice, coping skills, perserverance, preparing for the future, self esteem, family life, etc.

Examples of Global Milestones are world religions, ancient cultures, sustainability, ecology, convervation, disability awareness, etc.

Example of Mental Milestones are architecture, car maintenance, disaster management, first aid, nutrition, banking, journalism, internet, etc... (there's a really long list here!)

Examples of Spiritual Milestones are activism, manifestation, myths and mythology, service to humanity, etc.

Those are just a very few of the ones we have. If you'd be willing to help us, let us know. We also need help in other areas. Are you good at web maintenance? Are you really good at finances and grant writing? Do you know the law? Please check out this webpage  and fill out the little form and we will get back to you.

I hope you'll jump on this wagon with us. It's rolling forward and it's not stopping. Please join us!

If you don't feel comfortable filling out the form, you can email me directly. or text me. While you're here, please check out our Facebook page and like us. Cause we like you. :-)

Oh, also. We really need your dolla bills. For reals. We have a goal of earning $5000 by the first of May which will pay for our 501 (c) 3 status as a non-profit. Seriously. Please donate $5. Please. And share with your friends! Go HERE please.  Please?
