Youth leadership is the practice of teens exercising authority over themselves or others.[1]

Youth leadership has been elaborated upon as a theory of youth development in which young people gain skills and knowledge necessary to lead civic engagement, education reform and community organizing activities. Countless programs around the world seek to teach young people particular skills associated with leadership, particularly those programs associate with youth voice or youth empowerment. It is based on the study that it should strengthen individual and community capacity.[1][2]
