This class is excellent for everyone, but a must for future academic year high school participants or those considering studying abroad.

A one-week intensive leadership workshop focusing only in increasing your leadership abilities.

This brand new concept of a program is a one-week workshop that employs applied drama processes and analysis in order to understand leadership. This topic has been researched and addressed in the “Developing Creative And Ethical Capacities In The Next Generation Of Leaders”, Journal of Education 2017.

This workshop will teach using a hands on format, rather than a structured classroom format. It will promote the following skills:

  • Language acquisition and communication
  • Public Speaking Skills (posture, looking in the eye when speaking, etc.)
  • Voice Modulation
  • Learning how introduce yourself and how to make “small talk”

Most studies on this topic concludes that having good public speaking and leadership skills will benefit you as following: demonstrates your knowledge, differentiates you from others, makes you more promotable (whether at school or work), and will increase your abilities to guide and influence others (necessary for any good leader to have).

This workshop is structured in a 9-12 class. It will promote the following skills:

  • Language acquisition and communication
  • Basic Public Speaking Skills

Why Choose CCU?

CCU’s research on the topic of “Youth and Leadership, Tomorrow’s Global Leaders” indicates that today’s youth have to be presented with more on-hands learning techniques. Because of the “screen culture” that today’s youth are being exposed to, learning and educating them faces serious challenges, as youth’s brains have an attention span of about 7 minutes on one interesting topic.

CCU has concluded that the challenge is to design curriculums that are cutting edge and promotes participant’s attention, while still obtaining academic knowledge.

All of CCU’s workshops are specifically designed with the following modules, and for our participants to self discover:

1. Leadership
2. Public Speaking
3. Understand how to come out of the comfort zone
4. Cross-cultural relations
5. Academics
6. Who will you be in the future?

This dynamic and cutting edge curriculum and thinking is what will give an advantage to our participants and make them the preferred candidate in tomorrow’s professional environment.
