“The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.” John Maxwell
The Emerging Leaders Program builds a pipeline of ethical, well informed, diverse, and prepared individuals, ready to serve as civic leaders in their communities and across the state and country. At the end of this six-month program, participants are connected with internship opportunities within government and civics in order to utilize the skills they learned throughout their time in Emerging Leaders.
College students often are often pressured to focus solely on textbook and lecture-led education; during the Emerging Leaders: Leadership Program retreat participants practice team-building skills in realistic, hands-on scenarios, as well as fostering lifelong relationships with like-minded colleagues and dedicated mentors.
All Emerging Leaders graduates are assisted individually to secure an internship in their field of interest once the program is completed.
Since there is a schedule as long as six months it is a detailed training with an aim to improving emerging students to be better leaders everywhere and in the situation for a much successful and better future. During this period of training, each person is given special preference and they are familiarized with their situation and helped out in their ventures checking their interests and making appropriate placement specific training. It is better to sneak a peek at this website before starting out just so as to stay prepared for this program.
