New Horizons Leadership Project
Many students struggle to identify their interests and what they want to study. Having a focus or passion helps to define the road ahead. The student will create a unique leadership project. The leadership project helps students develop personal qualities that advance academic skills and develop interests and passions and give students public speaking, team building, problem solving, and leadership experience.
Colleges require applicants to write a narrative that identifies who they are, and what sets them apart from other candidates. The project is an important chapter in that narrative.
—Henry David Thoreau
Well-constructed service experiences can offer a vehicle for powerful learning related to leadership development.
