THE 7 SKILL SETS

“Do the best you can until you know better.
Then when you know better, do better.”
Maya Angelou

Many times in life we are faced with our own worst enemy: Self-doubt. A part of being a leader is knowing how to let go of self-doubt, and promoting a positive attitude. Klondike Leadership Academy wants to give your child a head start with the ‘Yes I Can’ skill set. Begin this skill set, and finish all of the activities for a grand total of 1,970 points toward the end-of-the-year prize.

“In every job that must be done there is an element of fun.” -Mary Poppins

One of the best things about having children is their propensity for play. Unfortunately, a lot of times their responsibilities are neglected in favor of fun games, toys, and television. We’ve created the Work Comes Before Play Skill Set to encourage children to complete their responsibilities before they participate in playful activities. You’ll find activities in this skill set to encourage a child to think ahead, prioritize their lives, create task lists, and figure out their routine. This skill set, if all of the activities are completed, is worth a total of 1,850 points.

“I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening.” -Larry King

Actively listening to another person is a skill that can take a child far in life. It isn’t only applicable in the case of a child following a parent or teacher’s instructions, but also in their adult life when landing that dream job or building a relationship with a friend. The Listen Before You Speak Skill Set will encourage children to listen actively, and evaluate their words before making a statement If all of the activities are completed, this skill set is worth a total of 430 points.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
-Helen Keller

I’m sure as a parent you’ve told your child that sharing is very important. The Together is Better Skill Set aims to teach them how to be a part of a team, share responsibilities, and understand social cues. If all of the activities are complete, this skill set is worth a total of 400 points.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
― Dr. Seuss

A leader’s role in society doesn’t solely consist of making plans and setting them into motion. More often, leaders consist of people who lead by inspiring their peers. In this skill set, your child(ren) will learn how to create inspiration among their friends and family, and volunteer within their community. If all of the activities are completed, this skill set is worth a total of  1,040 points.

“The only limit to your impact is your imagination and commitment.”
Tony Robbins

In our digital age, we’ve grown accustomed to immediacy. This has instilled in our communities a disdain for anything one must work toward. The Commitment Skill Set requires a child to choose their desired level of commitment, then complete the entire skill. There are three levels to choose from: 3, 6, and 9 month commitments. All the activities must be complete for the commitment level the child has chosen to receive any of the points. Only one commitment level can be chosen for the entire Klondike Leadership Academy year.

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

People are born with a very narrow view of the world. This can be remedied with travel and exposure to varied and exotic places of course, but a more readily available way to expand one’s knowledge is through reading. For the Leaders Are Readers Skill Set, a child will be able to obtain a library card, explore the world of fiction and non-fiction, expand their vocabulary, and create and illustrate their own book. This skill set does not have a per-determined points limit, as the child can read as many books as he or she would like.

“I knew KLA rocked when monitoring a leadership discussion. The groups were all discussing how they felt the school year was going. I heard students discussing what they could do to make it better. I then overheard another group across the room begin their sentence with, “Well it’s our responsibility to make sure…” I had parents share with me the difference it made in their children at home. As an educator hearing those words warms your heart.”

“As an educator, I actively seek opportunities to enrich the lives that God has given me influence over.  The Klondike Leadership Academy provided authentic experiences for my students to grow beyond the curriculum, and for that I am truly grateful! One of the most rewarding moments for me, was watching them make a donation to the pantry at Life House Church. They were given information about three local charities, but since many have benefitted from the kindness shown there, the students decided they wanted to pour back into them. My students grew because of this experience, and words cannot begin to express my sincere gratitude to HealthCARE Express and the entire KLA Team! Kudos to you! I’m looking forward to partnering with you again!”

“I enjoyed the leadership program this year because it was well organized and easy to use.  The program encouraged the students to think for themselves and take responsibility for taking on helpful tasks and leadership roles.  The students really enjoyed the different programs and began to think of more things they could do to help others.  I also liked the program because it encouraged our school and students to get more connected to the community by having people from the community come in to speak and having the students do community projects like sending cards to the nursing home.”
