Pub Charity Leadership Week

“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”

Jack Welch

Student leaders in Years 11 – 13 are set-up for a great year through our programme designed specifically for students who are taking a leading role at their school.

About the Pub Charity Leadership Week

Whether students have been elected as head girls/boys, prefects, school board of trustee representatives, heads of sport or culture or simply recognised as having great leadership potential, this programme will equip them with the skills they need to get off to a flying start for the coming year.

Enrolment is open to any students who have leadership potential and who may be interested in taking a leading role at school.

Students will develop skills and knowledge in:

  • Different leadership styles and selecting an appropriate style for the situation
  • Their personal leadership strengths
  • Self-leadership; maintaining their best self when challenged or under pressure
  • The role of social courage in leadership

How is this leadership programme different?

Our core school programmes include leadership as part of the learning outcomes, however students attending this programme will come away with a completely fresh experience even if they have attended one of our programmes before because the primary focus is on leadership. Students will learn about leadership both in theory and practice. Here are some key benefits of this programme:

  • Practical, challenging leadership experiences for each participant
  • 1:1 feedback for participants on their own leadership strengths and challenges (forming a leadership action plan)
  • Feedback for each school on their leaders strengths and their leadership action plan
  • Modular sessions to meet different leadership roles/needs
  • Opportunity for students to refine their communication and group presentation skills
  • Opportunity for students to meet and network with school leaders from other schools

Since 1972, Hillary Outdoors has worked on the philosophy that all youth, regardless of their finances or ability, should have equal opportunity to enhance their lives through outdoor education.

The Hillary Step Scholarship (HSS) programme helps make that happen for rangatahi and subsequently whānau and hapori by awarding Scholarships to help cover the cost of Hillary Outdoors programmes.

Thanks to our incredible community of Funders, we have overcome financial inequities and empowered thousands of rangatahi from across Aotearoa to have life changing experiences through outdoor and adventure education.

For more information about the Hillary Step Scholarship programme and other funding opportunities, check out our Funding Information Pack for schools, groups, organisations and individuals.

Note: You must have a confirmed booking with Hillary Outdoors to be eligible for a HSS.
