Delving into Female Adolescents Leadership Experiences in the Midst of Leading Service Learning Engagements: A Qualitative Case Study
Michael, Heather; Mitton-Kükner, Jennifer
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v62 n4 p405-420 Win 2016
The purpose of this work is to explore the experiences of four adolescent females who assumed leadership roles in service learning projects, in order to understand more about how those projects inspired and informed their understanding of themselves as leaders in the school and community. What became clear through this study is that age and gender played largely into participants' understanding of leadership. It also became evident that adolescent females need opportunities to practice their leadership skills and that service learning projects have the potential to create such occasions.
