SLC Reaches Out Leadership Program

SLC Reaches Out Leadership Program

What is the SLC Reaches Out Leadership Program?

Certain students that are considered to have leadership potential (academic results, leadership skills and recommendations) are invited to participate in the Reaches Out Leadership Program which offers them the opportunity to develop a community involvement project.

The key pillars of the program are as follows:

  1. A volunteering project
  2. A project that reaches out to the community
  3. A project that is finished within a year
  4. A project that reflects values
  5. A group project with a project leader.

A leadership training is offered throughout the year and mentors are assigned to students to accompany them in this activity.

For more information please see us in room 272.
