Southwestern Launches LEAD Program
It takes more than classroom knowledge alone to achieve our goals in life.
For over 150 years, Southwestern Advantage has trained young people on the principles of leadership and community impact.
LEAD is a new program designed to help individuals and families gain the skills and character they need to achieve their goals in life. The program spotlights –
Life & Leadership skills,
— the focus being on developing success habits, building confidence, and promoting personal responsibility.
“The person I will someday be, I am now becoming.”
Members enjoy full access to LEAD’s Virtual Library (an LMS platform for leadership training), to Southwestern’s academic service SouthwesternGlobalAcademy.com, a 72-page book on the fundamentals of leadership, scheduled conversations with a program mentor for accountability, and opportunities for letters of recommendation and internship interviews as students graduate high school.
Leadership Certification & Letter of Recommendation
By demonstrating action and understanding around the principles spotlighted in LEAD, members can receive a letter of recommendation from Southwestern that can be used when applying for colleges, scholarships, and jobs – written by Dr. Ralph Brigham, the Vice President for the Employer Network with the Cooperative Education and Internship Association (CEIA).
