In this independent study course (taken in addition to a regular course load) students will earn credit for volunteering 30 hours of service, participating in classroom learning and group projects that benefit the school and/or the community.
This course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore and develop their leadership skills. Students will learn leadership traits and be expected to demonstrate their capacity by organizing and leading various classroom, school, and community events. A strong focus is placed on personal growth and self-reflection. Other skills that will be a focus are ethical decision-making, teamwork, inclusion, communication, public speaking, time management, and organizational skills. Emphasis is also placed on service within the school and in the community.
This course is a continuation of the skills practiced in Leadership 11. Students are expected to take a high level of involvement and responsibility in course activities, as well as mentor younger students in the class.
