LSC’s program includes a class project, during which participants work in small teams to assist local organizations in the development of new, or in the implementation of existing, community-based projects. An experiential learning opportunity, the project allows participants to invest their individual skills, resources, and passions into efforts that aim to improve the community’s well-being. In the process, participants demonstrate their leadership capacity and cultivate meaningful experiences that contribute to their growth as leaders. The 2017 class will be working to advance the following community projects:
