Stand Up, Speak Out is a fun and innovative leadership conference for middle school students. A team of field specialists from the Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations will partner with Southern New Hampshire University students to conduct a variety of leadership skill workshops. Students from the New England League of Middle Schools will participate in games, learning, and the following workshops:
Team Building: Effective leaders know that being successful is not a one-person show. Students learn how to develop teams that utilize every member’s skills.
Speaking & Listening: Effective leaders know how to communicate. Students learn how to speak confidently and listen attentively.
Clarifying Values: Effective leaders know how to prioritize and to stay focused on their school's mission. Students learn how to decide what is important and what is not.
Students will review their schools’ learning climate and form an action plan to address needed changes to improve their schools. Students’ plans will be displayed virtually at next year’s conference through schools’ video submissions.
