The Girls' Leadership Experience Camp: A Parallel Process of Leadership Skill Development for School Counselors-in-Training
Briggs, Michele Kielty; Staton, A. Renee; Gilligan, Tammy D.
Professional School Counseling, v13 n2 p125-134 Dec 2009
School counseling programs must provide counselors-in-training with effective and multifaceted leadership skill-building opportunities (Brott, 2006; DeVoss & Andrews, 2006; Dollarhide, Gibson, & Saginak, 2008; Kaffenberger & Murphy, 2007). The Girls' Leadership Experience Camp (GLEC) was created by the authors to enhance the leadership abilities of local girls while providing a training ground for future school counselors to develop their own leadership abilities. The camp participants included 16 rising sixth-grade girls who were potential first-generation college students and were identified by school personnel as possible leaders. The training experiences were framed using the core qualities and components of the ASCA National Model[R] (American School Counselor Association, 2005). This article describes the processes and outcomes related to leadership training of future school counselors via the GLEC. (Contains 1 table.)
