The manual also includes: general information on the project; information on leadership and an explanation of leadership life skills; a definition of terms used in the guide; suggestions for developing project goals; recommendations for choosing a helper to assist in learning activities; a personal leadership skill assessment guide; and suggestions for practical leadership applications. Each learning activity description includes: specification of the type of leadership skills to be learned; participants to involve (groups or the individual with a helper); a brief description of the activity; a set of instructions; and discussion questions for interpreting the learning activity.
