DISCOVERING AHA! MOMENTS IN YOUTH CREATIVITY & LEADERSHIP

EVENTS | TOOLKIT | ENQUIRIES

#ycisl #creativeenergy #lifelessons

The Center for Sustainable Development and Global Competitiveness (CSDGC) at Stanford University recognizes that the development of leadership and creativity begins at a very early age, soon after the experience of discovery. Our flagship Youth Creativity, Innovation & Sustainable Leadership (YCISL) program focuses on creative energy exploration and EQ-enriched leadership mindsets and life lessons. We thrive as a kickstarter-type development studio blending Stanford-style open enquiry with youth-oriented coaching and practices.

LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IN AGE STAGES
Many of us, through exposure to popular media, largely associate leadership with professional adults who are in executive management roles in politics, government, or business. However, if we reflect on our life experiences, we realize that leadership opportunities actually begin in our youth and this is where the most influential leadership life lessons emerge. In this expanded leadership framework, we can begin to identify a sequence of leadership objectives at various age stages that help us adopt differentiated methods for fostering lifetime leadership development and resilient creativity.

FOSTERING YOUTH CREATIVITY & LEADERSHIP
Stanford University, one of the best known centers of high impact innovation, is the perfect setting to stimulate idea development and engage in problem-solving in the globally urgent area of sustainability. The YCISL workshop format focuses on introducing students to human-interactive sustainability design thinking, and seeks to help identify leadership opportunities connecting ideas to successful realization. Using a combination of lectures, discussions, hands-on design work, and site visits, the program provides multidimensional views of the sustainability universe, and will introduce you to various tools, approaches and distinguished thinkers so that you can embark on your own course of self-discovery.

EXPLORING YOUR CREATIVE UNIVERSE
The CSDGC Youth Leadership program is based on the premise that in standard learning environments, the objective is to rigidly parallel or even mirror particular knowledge frameworks and, as a result, the capacity for creative thinking shrinks. Our program, set against a sustainability backdrop, simply provides neutral ground and the freedom to explore one's creative universe - a universe in which ideas are born, shaped and shared, and you are empowered to discover and channel your passion. We also believe that youth, due to their limited exposure to life's behavorial boundaries and stressors, have extremely creative minds and can contribute in the short term as well as the long term - they just need the opportunity and the guidance to develop this skill in stages.

CSDGC YCISL PARTICIPANTS
CSDGC invites groups to collaboratively organize workshop programs that range from 1 to 8 days. The workshops would allow students to focus their thoughts on their leadership development, and explore their creativity environment. The youth groups may comprise students at:

  • High School: this program is designed to help college-bound students assess themselves and then look ahead. Consistent with the leadership objective of "Proof", the program will encourage students to develop a personal leadership identity and reinforce it with participation, contribution and influence on team projects.
  • College: this program is designed to help early college students optimize their higher learning experience. Using the leadership objective of "Integration", this program will focus on developing a compelling package of knowledge, skill and motivation.

CORE PROGRAM FEATURES
Design Thinking plays a front-and-center role in the development of our activities and the take-home messages we share. This is reflected in our YCISL Design Core which encapsulates 6 emphasis areas and messages.

The following features are the key components of each YCISL program. Complete programs will also include a selection of special enrichment activities. The emphasis or specific objectives may vary for different groups.

  • CREATIVE ENERGY Explore your creative energy capacity and levels. Exercise your fast-thinking creativity to develop it into a personal strength.
  • PROJECT STUDIO: PROBLEM-SOLVING & INNOVATION Work in teams mentored by instructional staff to develop ideas into problem-solving products or processes. Learn techniques in brainstorming and prototyping that lifts ideation to idea-sharing and demonstration. Experience an innovation framework from concept to roll-out.
  • SUSTAINABLE BY DESIGN Learn about design and engineering approaches to sustainability, and the role of creativity in promoting or challenging sustainable standards as it affects personal lives.
  • TEAMWORK & TEAM BUILDING Look at the mechanics of assembling teams, and then getting teams to work together. Consider the issues involved in team communications and performance.
  • LEADERSHIP INTELLIGENCE View leadership excellence as the product of the combination of knowledge intelligence with emotional intelligence.
  • YOUR PERSONAL STORY Learn about the importance of composing your personal story for attaining motivation, growth and positivity.

OUTCOMES
Leadership rises in the context of a personal story. Our program seeks to encourage youth to focus on the development of their personal story through systematic personal skills and talent development. Emphasis is on the balance of knowledge intelligence with emotional intelligence, employing tools for continuous personal assessment and social awareness.

COMPARATIVE ADVANTAGES
Our program is unique. We are a small-batch venture focused on the now and are distinct in our position, posture and purpose.

  • Our position within a Stanford University academic department, the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering, allows us to provide world-class research, teaching and learning insights.
  • We make connections with thought leaders and scholars from the Stanford and Silicon Valley communities, and encourage dialog so viewpoints and knowledge are shared. We offer opportunity to connect the dots.
  • We offer intellectual stimulation and inspiration for organic self-discovery of one's potential, purpose and passion. We are not passive.
  • Our program has longitudinal goals and lasting lessons in order to support long-term personal development. We aim to influence the future.
  • We are rapidly evolving and, through experimental design of our activities, keep the content engaging and purposeful. We are a dynamic project.
