Hanahau’oli School announces the return of the Progressive Youth Leadership Academy (PYLA) after a successful inaugural class in 2019. Youth entering grades 9-12 are invited to join our second cohort of leaders to find their “bliss” and reflect on their role in creating a better future society. The course includes a one hour seminar each day, during which students will engage in inquiry, reflection, and the development of leadership skills under the mentorship of Mrs. Jennifer Stierli and Ms. Sasha Himeno-Price. Seminars are followed by two hours of hands-on practicum experience in Hanahau’oli Summer School’s After School Care Program, where PYLA participants will apply their passions and interests to develop learning experiences for elementary-aged students. The course will culminate with a reflection and personal essay exploring how each student’s unique style of leadership is a vital expression of citizenship in our diverse democracy. Participants will earn 48 community service hours while learning about themselves, identifying concrete ways they may contribute to a better future society, and fine-tuning leadership skills with youth.
