Other High School Courses
Program Goals & Objectives:
- Students will develop a better understanding of what leadership is, the skills it takes to lead as well as being a contributing team member.
- Students will learn about themselves, what they are capable of and what they can accomplish when they set their mind to it. They will grow as team players, creative thinkers, effective communicators and capable citizens. Yes, this will involve speeches/presentations!
- Leadership will extend the student’s sense of community, open their eyes to their potential, and provides opportunities for them to share their successes. Students will begin to see how they can shape events rather than be shaped by them.
- Students will have the opportunity to be a mentor as well as a mentee. (Lots of volunteer opportunities in this class)
- New in the 2015-2016 School Year: We are taking over Students Union! Students will have the opportunity to shape their school and get more involved in various committees.
