Teaching our E12 Excellence in Public Service Students about the City of Los Angeles
Posted by Councilmember Englander on July 07, 2017 at 9:44 AM
This summer, I launched the fifth class of the Mitchell Englander E12 Excellence in Public Service High School Leadership Development Program to train and cultivate the next generation of young leaders in our community.
This interdisciplinary program is designed to empower young leaders from our public and private school communities to embrace the notions of civic engagement and social responsibility in the context of a working City Council office. Working with a talented cadre of 25 high school students throughout Council District 12, my staff is guiding these future leaders through activities and dialogue focusing on topics such as expanding leadership capacity, formulating public policy, and fostering group cohesion.
Our goal is to teach students how to navigate the network of public agencies, facilitate collaborative coalition building, and master interpersonal skills to succeed in both school and the workplace.
Upcoming highlights for our E12 students include discovering our local history at the Valley Relics Museum, learning about public safety from our officers at the LAPD Devonshire Division, and understanding what the City of Los Angeles is doing to combat ongoing homelessness issues with the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission.
