Who is ELP Level II for?

  • Staff who have served with Teen Challenge at least one year, demonstrate growth and development, and are committed long term to Teen Challenge.
  • Directors and all staff who have not completed Level II
  • Pre-Requisites for Level II:

  • Graduation from Level I
  • Basic computer literacy
  • Completion of “Taking Control of Your Workday”
  • Completion of the “ELP Level II Roadmap"
  • Completion of Base Camp (Southeast Region)
  • What is the focus of Level II?

    We said that the focus of Level I is establishing personal leadership. As leaders, we never stop working on our own leadership example, so this remains a focus in Level II as well. When people trust the leader’s walk, they willingly follow, giving the leader permission to lead them, not just boss them. The focus of Level II is one-on-one leadership, and leading others begins with valuing others.

    How is the Level II structured?

    The Level II is a one-year program which systematically takes participants through one book per month (with the exception of one 3-month course). Participants learn the value of reading and on-going growth and development as well as the value of mentorship and learning with and from others. Each course has its own Syllabus, Study Guide and Test (if applicable) helping participants to process and apply what they are reading.

    To successfully graduate from the ELP Level II, a participant must:

  • Complete the 7 Core Courses
  • Choose 1 of the 6 Elective Tracks courses and complete the coursework
  • Participate in a weekly On-line Discussion Forum
  • Complete 12 hours of Community Service
  • Attend an ELP Summit (or another leadership event for those outside the Southeast Region)
