GH Kids Vote for President!
The young leaders of GLAD House are gearing up for the Kid Government Elections! This January, our amazing kids will be participating in this empowering program, learning valuable skills and making a positive impact on their peers.
Each role in the Kid Government will teach our kids to listen to their peers, and collaborate on how to present the changes they want to see! They are learning teamwork, responsibility, and effective communication through real-life experiences. When children have a strong sense of agency and control, they are empowered in all areas of their lives.
Participating in elections gives children a sense of empowerment and agency. It allows them to have a voice in decision-making processes and feel that their opinions matter. They are offered a place for creativity, innovation, and self-expression!
Leadership roles helps our kids develop skills, including communication, teamwork, conflict-resolution, and problem-solving.
Through the election process, kids learn to think critically and make decisions based on their values and the needs of their peers. This enhances their analytical skills and decision-making abilities.
Engaging in campaigns, speeches, and collaborative projects improves our kids' social skills. They learn how to interact with their peers, express their ideas, and work together towards common goals.
