What do I learn in the Tigers’ L.E.A.D. Program?
Our workshops are based around the 3 dimensions present in the Social Change Model of Leadership.
Level 1 focuses on the Individual Dimension and is focused on self-awareness. In this level, students will learn about what leadership is and begin exploring an understanding of themselves and their potential for leadership. Students will participate in a alues clarification workshop and a leadership styles inventory workshop in addition to learning about interpersonal communication, communication in media, visioning and goal setting and critical thinking. 
 
Level 2 focuses on the Group Dimension and is focused on working in relationship with others. In this level, students will learn about others and how to work effectively in groups. Students will focus on diversity, ethical decision making, and group dynamics.
 
Level 3 focuses on the Community or Society Dimension and is focused on how we work in our communities to create change. Students in this level have the opportunity to learn about the elements of social change, civic engagement, generative leadership through workshops and hands-on experiences in creating change in their community.
