This program is a series of eight online classes (one pre-work class, six content classes, and a capstone/final class). Participants complete the Student LPI and other assigned pre-work prior to the beginning of the program and use their results throughout the program to develop a deeper understanding of the model and their own opportunities for development. There is an introductory session that focuses on the pre-work prior to the content sessions. Participants engage in between-session activities, such as watching content overview videos and sharing comments, with two instructors and other class participants focused on student leadership. Recordings of each class are available in case you miss a class or want to review at a later time. All class members participate with trainers in a synchronous end-of-session capstone event focused on the delivery of Student Leadership Challenge programs. An assessment is given at the end of the program to measure the understanding of the core content. Satisfactory completion of the requirements results in earning a Certificate of Completion of The Student Leadership Challenge.
Pre-Work & Preliminary Online Meeting
Participants will complete some pre-work assignments, such as a personal leadership narrative and the Student Leadership Practices Inventory, in advance of the first class. The week prior to the first online class (week of June 17), there will be several conference calls scheduled where you will select one call to participate in to begin meeting your peers and discuss some of the pre-work.

Capstone & Final Program Requirements
To complete the program, we will offer a final online Capstone meeting where we will discuss with you your plans for taking what you have learned about The Student Leadership Challenge and use that to begin building or growing your leadership initiative at your school, campus or organization. We want to help you develop a transition into your program design and/or implementation so you can move forward to Liberate the Leader in Your Students.
