Along with psychological changes of entering adolescence, teens start to make important decisions on their own. Giving them instructions is no more a proper way to help them direct their life. So how can we support teens in living independently as well as harmoniously with family and people around? 

SELF-LEADERSHIP FOR TEENS (for junior high schools) gives teens opportunities to understand themselves, recognize their strengths and areas to improve, and define their motivations. The subject encourages teens to think of who they want to be and set long-term success and happiness which they want to achieve. As a result, they can become more proactive and inspired to build their learning path and prepare for what they can right now. 



How to create the person we want?
“In order to make it, we should first redefine the role and reset the learners’ attitudes in their educational process: passive or proactive, “slave” or “owner”? The input of an educational process is  a learner; and the output is also that learner with a new mindset, new knowledge, new capabilities and new behaviors. 
So, the “producers” of an educational process are the state, schools, teachers, or learners themselves? I believe that the “producer” is the learners whereas the state, schools, teachers or parents are only catalysts or supporters of the process. 
Since early childhood, learners have been placed in the environment that they can take ownership of their educational process, thereby developing independent thinking to transform others’ knowledge, skills and experience into their own assets. They will redefine their learning and more deeply understand it by three questions: Why to learn? What to learn? How to learn? Furthermore, they should know whom they want to be and how to become such a person.”
