Phase III

Lead The Way To Positive Change In Your Community!

Phase III concludes the formally guided exploration of leadership for students and push their leadership skills to new heights. Students in Phase III are tasked with choose a community, explore it thoroughly, and identify an issue that affects it. Using their skills in leadership as well as their own unique set of skills, students will work to find and implement possible solutions that will benefit the community. The timeline, group size, and implementation specifics are up to each individual student.


Phase III is a free, year-long, non-credit independent study course that has no regular meeting time during the fall and spring semesters. Students meet with a staff “Coach” only 3 times (at minimum) through the year to update on their status. Students must satisfy all requirements of Phase III to receive their Certificate of Leadership Development at the Annual Awards Program in April.
