People with skills in the areas of child development (with a particular focus on youth), social justice, and/or the arts would most likely enjoy leading these workshops. Seek leaders who are willing to learn alongside youth and help them build leadership skills instead of doing the work for them. Working with a co-leader offers great opportunities to reflect with another adult as you guide and witness this exploration of social justice for youth. Co-leaders who complement each other with different skills—perhaps one with experience in social justice work and another who has worked with youth before—would be good choices. Because of the sensitive nature of some of the topics, make sure potential leaders review the program before committing. Leaders need to be able to model Unitarian Universalist values of tolerance and justice-loving, in words and deeds.
