Students are introduced to multiple perspectives of leadership thought and theory and begin to see how those perspectives intersect with their own experiences.
Students engage in opportunities that challenge their skills and assumptions, which help them cultivate a pathway of involvement that makes a difference to those within their community.
Students are immersed in experiences and environments that foster relationships, encourage personal reflection, and deepen the understanding of diverse points of view - all of which contribute to individual growth.
Students sharpen their personal skills and abilities by contributing in ways that provide continuous insight, feedback, and reflection about their personal leadership philosophy.
Students see themselves as global citizens, understand the personal and global responsibility of leadership, and possess the ability to integrate and apply what is learned in order to excel in this new world.
For 20 years, WebsterLEADS has engaged students in an on-going application of scholarship and practical leadership experiences that develops a foundation from which they will change the world.
