RaDiAL Leadership Development Structure


The YJC RaDiAL framework continues to guide the leadership development efforts of the college for JC2 students.  Our college believes that every student is a student leader and sees leadership development as integral to our students’ education.  Our blueprint for nurturing all students to be “global-ready leaders” is encapsulated in the YJC RaDiAL Framework below.

                                                     YJC RaDiAL Leadership Framework

The YJC RaDiAL Framework guides student leadership development in the formal and non-formal curriculum: which include the co-curricular programme, overseas service learning and immersion trips, and student work attachment. This framework aims to impart skills and competencies to prepare our students as future leaders in their respective fields.

SLD@YJC adopts Kouzes and Posner’s The Leadership Challenge (TLC) model on how to be a successful leader to achieve the outcomes depicted in the YJC RaDiAL framework.  

The TLC model proposes Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership to guide students on how to bring out the best in themselves and those they lead.

The five practices are behaviours that are supported by skill sets within the YJC RaDiAL Framework.  Students will be coached to display these leadership behaviours in various contexts such as in classroom learning, CCA groups, and in organising college events.

The RaDiAL Leadership Development Structure (RLDS), reviewed in 2016, encapsulates the leadership training and experiential learning opportunities for our students. All students will have a place in one of the twelve groups

The Ambassadorial groups support and promote relevant causes within the college such as environmental awareness and aesthetics development and appreciation while the Subject Councils support deep learning and appreciation for the respective subjects.  The Class Leaders Committee supports student bonding at the class level and organises activities to promote school pride and affect. The Student Council, House Executive Committee, CCA Executive Committees and the Class Leaders Committee collectively represent the highest echelon of the student leadership body.
