Civic Leadership: Leading for Change

15 points



In this course, students will learn the necessary academic skills and knowledge, as well as ethical and cultural considerations, to explore the background of an issue or challenge they see for youth and/or their community, hapu, or iwi. These may include issues of social justice, equity, sustainability, positive development, policy, global citizenship, and others. Students will develop an action plan of how to address their chosen topic; a proposal that will consider how their actions' effectiveness will be measured. As part of the course, applying the approach of tuakana/ teina, we will take part in a Noho Marae with YACL101 students to deepen and extend our bi-cultural understanding in relation to our community project and to support the next generation of YACL students on their journey.
