Young Women Young Leaders
A Game to Get the Best Out of Adolescence
Girls need to foster leadership during this transitional phase of growth. A leadership guide might not solve everything, but what counts is that it is immediate and at once effective.
Young Leaders Young Women is designed for girls who are 10 years and above and can be played solo, in pairs or a group of 6. Played on a board with dice and cards, the game invites girls to ask one another a series of challenging scenarios that might happen during adolescence.
In the game, girls will travel to six different empires: the Roman Empire, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece, Ottoman Empire, Aztec Empire, and Ancient China. Young Leaders Young Women has 60 key challenging situations that girls might face during adolescence, including family, friendship, school, and self.
Leadership for Girls
Girls tend to begin their adolescence with a deeply unrepresentative experience. They grow up inducted into a world of astonishing indifference to almost everything they are, they think, they say, or they do. There is perhaps no greater priority in childhood than to require an education. But there is one unstudied subject that we live through every day, that is leadership. Young leadership education is a chance to lead a fulfilled adult life. It depends overwhelmingly on the knowledge and engagement with the nature of adolescence.
Leadership can help us skirt adult danger and guide us to fulfillment. It's the subject that far more than any other subject has the decisive power to teach us about ourselves.
In this inner journey, girls will learn about six steps to be a leader.
Question cards should be approached with:
- Structure: The accountability to others and to personal values.
- Knowledge: The awareness to expand self-knowledge and transfer it to others.
- Strategy: The potential to motivate and persuade others to acquire personal vision.
- Relationship: The good intention and concern toward others.
- Endurance: the understanding that changes take time and energy.
