Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1987 
48 p. 

The Indian Youth Leadership Program and the Indian Youth Leadership Camp (IYLC) were created in 1981 in response to the need to develop specific skills in Indian youth who will assume leadership positions in the future at the family, school, community, tribal, and national level. Patterned after the National Youth Leadership Camp, the IYLC emerged as an 8 to 10 day intensive camp experience (first based near Tahlequah, Oklahoma and later moved to the Navajo reservation in New Mexico). The intent of the IYLC is to facilitate "habilitation," developing skills needed to become functional, competent, independent adults. This is done by emphasizing: discussion and analysis of experiences, transfer of learning to other situations, leadership skill development and hands-on learning, service ethics, non-Indian versus traditional leadership styles, and dealing with conflicts between those styles. Intra-personal, communications, judgment and situational skills and role modeling, family process and belief in personal abilities perceptions are acquired through the habilitation process. A detailed outline and brief explanation of the major features of the camp (such as student selection, staffing, role modeling, leadership seminars, daily schedules, etc.) is included. A sample plan for an IYLC, program management information, and equipment lists are appended. (JMM)
