2017 Student Leaderships have concluded… and nearly 2500 students took part!
This past year TACSC partnered with schools in two states to present Student Leaderships Days to nearly 2500 participants from over 80 schools in 21 locations. Middle Schools students enjoyed lessons in leadership in a day of fun filled learning and games. “Student Leadership Days are a chance for students to be taught by other student leaders. Every middle school student leaves Student Leadership Day a better leader because of the preparation and participation of our amazing high school facilitators, ” said TACSC Executive Director, Heidi Johnson.
Students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade attend workshops on servant leadership, the consequences of your actions, accepting and welcoming diversity in groups, finding your strengths, conflict management and problem solving. These lessons were uniquely prepared and presented by over 150 local high school leaders from 17 of the regions top high schools. The Peer-to-peer learning model actively engages the middle school leaders and models leadership in many ways.
Feedback from participants and host schools has been very strong. The Student Leadership Day Program gives host Catholic high schools the opportunity to show off their campus and students, while TACSC can showcase their program for middle school students who experience a day of fun-filled leadership learning.
