CME 550G - Youth Development: Leadership and Mentoring for Social Change

Credits: 4
This course focuses on the theory and practice of mentoring and supporting youth. It will explore the intersections of mentoring, leadership, and social change. The theory and practice of mentoring will be explored in conjunction with the social change model of leadership. Students will learn about themselves and their leadership style while considering the broader context of leadership for social change. Questions explored will include: can mentoring cross gender/age/race/class, how important is it for mentors and mentees to have a similar worldview and values, and what is the connection between mentoring and leadership. In addition, this course will be highly experiential in nature with a practical mentoring component.
