Student Body Leadership A

Why This Class

As your student pursues a leadership education, they might feel inspired to put their skills to a practical test right now. Williamsburg Student Body Leadership positions give students a perfect chance to do just that. This invitation-only course equips the students who earn those roles with the tools to make the most of them.

Students in this course work in small groups of peers to level-up their leadership skills with guidance from a mentor. They learn and apply principles for effectively leading groups, including building rapport and facilitating teamwork. Mentors then guide students to use these skills to plan and carry out a school-wide event and assist in at least two others.

Students emerge from this course feeling confident and empowered in their newfound ability to create excellent experiences for their peers. They are prepared to add value to any groups they get involved with in the future.
