Leadership Council  

Leadership & Advocacy

Leadership Council is for individuals aged 16+ who want to guide decisions at Beacons, Inc. and develop leadership and advocacy skills. Leadership Council is a free activity guided by a facilitator to make sure the decisions of Beacons, Inc. are driven by the interests and input of the individuals it serves, and that the council members develop skills to strengthen self-advocacy, decision making and leadership.  

 

Each council meeting uses multiple options for expressive communication to welcome all forms of input.

What does Leadership Council do?

Leadership Council members:

share ideas about what they would like Beacons to do,

 develop and practice leadership skills through group activities,
explore and work with technology to develop advocacy skills,

develop leadership profiles,

present agenda topics to drive & lead meetings, and

as of May 2020, create a monthly Leadership Newsletter.

Should you prepare for Leadership Council? Yes!

An "agenda" is shared with leaders before each meeting so that they may ask questions or add to it, and prepare ahead of time.

What is an "Agenda"?
An agenda lists the things that will be talked about at the meeting so that people can read it ahead of time and prepare some thoughts if they want for the meeting.
