Starting Leaders UNITE at your school or student group for the 2018-2019 school year!

We are currently working on planning our events for the upcoming school year at Duke University. We are excited to share many new activities with all of you once the school year starts! If you are interested in starting a branch of Leaders UNITE at your school or with your student group, please let us know! We would love to add more groups to our Leaders UNITE network and help you to find the best way to incorporate the club based on the goals and schedule of your group. Keep in mind that there are Leaders UNITE activities for every age group and that the club can work to supplement other activities that are already a part of your group. Email us at leadersuniteclub@gmail.com if you are interested in starting Leaders UNITE at your school or group! We would be happy to provide you with fun hands-on leadership activities, discussion prompts, teamwork goals, and keep you updated on activities and conferences that will happen with all of the branches of the club as well as our new local and global projects for the 2018-2019 school year. We hope to hear from you soon! Email us if you are interested, or if you have any questions about how you can fit Leaders UNITE into your group.

Leaders UNITE Poem Read at National Junior Honor Society Induction Ceremony

At the end of April 2018, Leaders UNITE received great news. Our poem, “A Leader is You” was chosen to be read at the induction ceremony for the National Junior Honor Society! We are honored that the group chose to read our poem at this event, and were told that the reading went well. The poem can be found under the “A Leader is…” tab on our website. If anyone is ever interested in using our poems at an event, comment on our post or send us an email to gain permission. We love to see what great things you will use our poems for! Congratulations to everyone who was inducted to the National Junior Honor Society, and thank you for reading our poem!

Happy New Year- Leaders UNITE Style!

Hi everyone! On behalf of Leaders UNITE, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, filled with happiness and success. To start the New Year on a positive note, like my Facebook status for a YAS!

***

For those of you that do not know, YAS is a Leaders UNITE social media movement. YAS stands for You Are Special and highlights the positive traits we see in one another. Feel free to post this as your status to continue the movement. For each person that likes the status, I will post on their wall, beginning with, “YAS because…” and then saying nice things about the person. It is easy and fun. So like my status- or make it your own- to give it a try!

We are happy to spread positivity on Facebook! The status can be found on my personal page and on the Duke YAS page.

The 2015-2016 Schedule Is Here!!

Here is the Leaders UNITE schedule for the 2015-2016 school year. We are doing things a little bit differently this year, but we believe that this schedule will more accurately portray the goals of the club as well as be more practical for a diverse amount of schools with different club times, resources, etc. If you have any questions regarding the schedule, feel free to email or contact leadersuniteclub@gmail.com . We are excited for the upcoming school year and cannot wait to see what you all will accomplish!

Leaders UNITE Goals for 2015-2016 School Year

Hi everyone! Here is a list of some of the Leaders UNITE goals for the upcoming school year. We hope everyone will become involved with the many opportunities present and that we can help spread positivity and leadership throughout the larger community.

  1. Create YAS Facebook pages for all groups involved so that people can post YAS statuses to others within the community.
  2. Implement Compliment Card boxes in more of the schools involved with the club.
  3. Have more students create their own volunteer projects to post on the website and organize.
  4. Host a conference with some of the local schools involved with this club.
  5. Continue expanding Leaders UNITE to other schools.

We will announce projects and news events throughout the year, so stay up to date on everything through the website. Check the News page for the most recent updates, and we hope to see you all involved in the upcoming school year!

Meet Miriam

I would like to introduce everyone to Miriam W. (pictured left.) Since Ivana is now in college, Miriam will take over the Cary Academy branch of the club. I would like to thank Miriam for all of the work she has already put into the club, and I look forward to collaborating with her more in the future. Stay tuned for some of Miriam’s ideas and contributions to Leaders UNITE!

YAS (You Are Special) for schools on Facebook!

YAS is taking on Facebook in a new way! Each interested school is getting own YAS Facebook page! People can send in YAS notes anonymously or with their name on the virtual note. Then, the administrator of the page (either me or someone from your school who is interested) will post the virtual note on the Facebook page. The page will be filled with YAS messages! Feel free to comment on YAS messages or just take pleasure in the kind words of your peers.

For more information, commment or email leadersuniteclub@gmail.com. If you would like to be an administrator on your school’s YAS page, let me know in the comment/email.
