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.

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.
