Our Program Leaders
Our people are our greatest asset.
Supporting potential and building leaders within our organisation and within communities is a core principle of LSC&PH. Our approach to developing leaders involves the recognition of people’s capacity, and active mentoring of this capacity by peers and adults. We also aim to create an organisational culture which promotes and supports leadership development of individuals who identify themselves within minority groups. Through active role modelling we also aim to broaden the diversity and retention of our volunteer membership. Through our programs we provide opportunities for people to test new skills and to stretch capacity within a supportive environment. We also have appropriate processes in place for feedback, reflection, identification of weaknesses and building on strengths.
Utilising ongoing relationships with peer-to-peer mentors and adult to young people, is one of our approaches to capacity and leadership development.
