So much is happening in our schools, we have to blog about it!
During the first week, program participants take part in a five-day leadership development training to enhance their leadership skills and learn new skills that can be used in their everyday school and future careers. The program runs from July 9 through August 4.
After the weeklong leadership training, program participants apply their acquired skills by identifying community projects and/or events of their choice and will work on them for the following three weeks. Program participants that complete the training and their projects will receive a special recognition certificate and a letter of recommendation from Assemblymember Alejo.
The Young Assemblymembers Program includes training on:
· Leadership Development,
· The Legislative Process,
· Project Planning & Coordination,
· Community Organizing, and
· Professional Development in Careers.
To attend the Young Assemblymembers Program orientation, for program information or questions can be directed to Rosie at (831) 759-8676 or via email at Rosie.Martinez@asm.ca.gov.
"The most valuable and enduring competency you have acquired is that you have learned how to learn. You’re starting your adult life in a globalized society undergoing rapid and accelerating technological change. In this information age, most of the specific knowledge you have obtained will become obsolete in a few years, with the sum total of human knowledge doubling every two to three years.
In addition, people entering the workforce today are expected to change careers—not just jobs, but careers—five to seven times during their lifetime. So in all likelihood, you will be applying lifelong learning skills you have developed in your college years to acquire knowledge that has not been created yet and to apply it in occupations that do not yet exist."
