Claremont Program Takes Dramatic Approach To Develop Teen Leadership

Frank Rogers has reshaped leadership development among youth by inviting them to become active agents in their own story instead of passive recipients of the consumer culture. Using a “narrative pedagogy,” Rogers enables youth to use Christian symbols and stories to tell their own stories which in turn prepares them to lead in the future by helping those around them better to understand the larger context and meaning of their lives and the crises that they encounter.
