ABSTRACT

Youth leadership education for young females is critical to develop leadership skills. A youth leadership training program by GLAD at one of the India’s leading conglomerate group was conducted with a group of 60 females in Karnataka, India. The age range of the participants was between 20 to 35 years. The aim of the training program was to create future trainers in the community to promote sustainable leadership skills and capacity building in “Young Women”. The objective focus was on knowledge, attitude & practice change, and building specific psychosocial skills to help people make informed decisions, regulate emotions, build confidence, communicate effectively, and develop coping and self-management skills. A mixed methodology with quantitative and qualitative components was used. A focus group discussion and semi structured interview were conducted, and themes were analyzed. The training program across the duration span of 6 months showed a movement from self-awareness, through self-management to creating a healthy and rewarding relationship.
