Student Leadership Excellence

Purpose of Program: To equip local high school administrators, teachers, staff and students with high quality, research-based leadership skills. For high school students, leadership skills are not something that can simply be caught along the way; rather, these skills must be intentionally taught.

Overview of the Program: This three-part process starts with the leadership team of high school administrators, teachers and selected staff participating in the 8-hour Leadership Excellence program. Next, those selected from the initial group will participate in a 18-hour Student Leadership Excellence Train-the-Trainer program, equipping them to teach the Leadership Excellence program to high school students within their school district. Finally, the trainers will teach the 14-hour Student Leadership Excellence program to select high school students, proctor the final exam and oversee the practicum.

Why is this program critical? The Student Leadership Excellence curriculum directly addresses the five components of Ohio’s K-12 Social and Emotional Learning Standards adopted in June 2019 by fostering skill development in each area. Even more, the curriculum teaches these skills in the context of practical leadership application, giving the student life skills that will equip the student to thrive regardless of their career path (enlist, enroll, or employ).
Who should participate: Any school district who wishes to improve their operations and equip students with a high quality, in-demand leadership skillset. Want to hear from high school students? Watch Video
