Student Leadership Days 2018 Completed with over 2700 Participants!
TACSC just completed 22 Student Leadership Days (SLD’s) in Southern California, San Diego and Arizona… and had over 2700 High School and Middle School students participate in our most successful year for SLD’s to date!
Over 100 Elementary and Middle Schools sent students to learn about Public Speaking, Strengths and Weaknesses, Time Management, Group Dynamics and most importantly, Servant Leadership. These lessons were presented by 200 High School Leaders who also had the opportunity to proudly represent their High School and encourage middle schools students to continue their Catholic Education. We focused on providing tools for the students to create projects and programs that would positively impact their parish and schools.
Program Director Gene Detre was all smiles when asked about the impact this day has on students. “This is an incredible program you have got the see,” said Gene. “Students teaching students leadership is something that is unique to TACSC. By providing role models and support to our middle school students, their potential is limitless! The students arrive to an organized and planned event in which they participate in both small group and larger group presentations and activities.” Anthony Boulahoud, who played an instrumental role in presenting these programs, said, “The genuine compassion shown by all of the High School Leaders make the younger students comfortable and encourages new relationships between schools and students that did not exist before. This is a win-win-win for everyone who participates. ”
Now, it is time to move on to summer Leadership Conference, where students experience 5-days/4-nights of programs and activities designed to build on the lessons learned at SLD. Hope to see you there!
