Overview of Rising Stars
The Rising Stars Leadership Process is a comprehensive course consisting of intensive "thinking" and "doing". It is a behavioral change management process with positive long-term effects.
Students will be guided by a certified facilitator for Rising Stars. The goal of the process is to teach the participants leadership skills to succeed academically as well as becoming a vital part of the community. This is accomplished by developing the "whole person" ...the social, mental, physical, family and home, ethical, and career/financial aspects of life.
The program outcomes are:
- Apply self-assessment skills
