Feedback form is now closed.
Gifted and talented students often excel in academic preparation; however, is this enough to foster their potential?

Through the Academic and Career Planning process, students can now take advantage of their school's potential opportunities outside of the classroom to connect, learn, and contribute in the school or in the community to identify problems and implement solutions, as well as gain state level recognition of those contributions mentored by a third party.

This session will describe DPI's Youth Leadership Certificate and how to incorporate Learner-Driven Voice! Attendees will: 
  • Understand the Youth Leadership Certificate and its requirements.
  • Be able to highlight and connect potential opportunities to use the Youth Leadership certificate to develop Learner-Driven Voice.
