Are you interested in exploring what leadership means to you and how to build your skills while giving back to your community?
The Community Leadership Program is a professional development opportunity for UBC staff to explore the meaning of leadership through a series of interactive, participatory workshops. Participant leaders apply and practice new skills and knowledge by leading a group of UBC undergraduate students through a three-day community-service learning project in a school or non-profit organization during UBC’s Reading Week break in February, 2017. In addition to learning about leadership, project leaders assist UBC students to cultivate their own leadership capacity and reflect on some of the real issues in community.
