Leadership


Quote: "A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus."

Fact: Simple acts often transform people into important leaders. In 1955, a black woman named Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man when the "whites only" section of the public bus was full. That sparked Martin Luther King Jr. to lead the Montgomery Bus Boycott — a 13-month protest that helped end segregation on the city's buses and fueled the U.S. Civil Rights Movement.

What kids can do: Be a leader in a club, on a sports team, or in the classroom. Feel confident in yourself, show good sportsmanship, and help your peers work out conflicts.

Next: Selflessness
