eD 39 Igniting Potential: Developing Character and Leadership Through Social Action£2.77
The word ‘education’ draws on two Latin terms, ‘educare’ meaning to raise up or train, and ‘educere’ meaning to draw out what is within. Good education does both of these things.
This engaging study shows how involving young people in practical social action achieves both these things, by enabling the development of character and the building of leadership skills. It draws on practical examples from the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust’s projects.
