Community Catalyst Leadership Program is back y’allllllll!

Hey, you… yeah, you.  No, not you… well, actually, you too.

Have you been thinking to yourself lately, “Shoot, I wish I had the opportunity to have a MIT alumni mentor to help me craft my leadership vision, coach me through my collegiate experience to better prepare me to engage as a student, professional, and citizen at MIT and beyond?”

See, even Benedict was thinking it.

Well, even if you haven’t been thinking that exact thing, if you are a member of the Class of 2017, then the Community Catalyst Leadership Program, or CCLP, is a great leadership and mentorship opportunity you have the opportunity to apply for!

Established in 2007, the Community Catalyst Leadership Program (CCLP) asks participants to engage in a journey of personal leadership development and reflection. Each participant is paired with an MIT alumnus/a in a coaching relationship designed to meet each student’s personal development goals. This program is open to students regardless of prior participation in leadership opportunities at MIT. There are four components of the program: one-on-one coaching, educational sessions, leadership planning, and personal reflection.

Not exactly what we mean by “personal reflection”…

There are a couple opportunities to learn more about the program, including info sessions on November 3rd at 7pm in 3-422 and on November 18th, from 12-1pm in 3-442.

Then, the application deadline is November 21st, 2014 – and remember, you can apply here: https://alum.mit.edu/students/NetworkwithAlumni/cclp 

For those accepted, there is a mandatory Kick-Off Conference on February 8th, 2015… but that’s in a whole other year… so, like, just make sure you apply first!

Sophomores! Get ready to get in the lead!

Calling all sophomores – get engaged with the Community Catalyst Leadership Program!

The Student Activities Office and the Alumni Association are looking for outstanding sophomores who want to gain leadership skills while developing a mentoring relationship with an Alumni coach.

The Community Catalyst Leadership Program (CCLP) asks participants to engage in a journey of personal leadership development and reflection. Each participant is paired with an MIT alumnus/a in a coaching relationship designed to meet each student’s personal development goals. This program is open to any member of the sophomore class, regardless of prior participation in leadership opportunities at MIT.  So whether you are just starting out getting involved on campus and in student organizations, or you are the President of the Underwater Laboratory Advocacy Student Association and Secretary for the Living Poets Society, CCLP will have something for you!

Join CCLP, and instead of getting dragged back across the kitchen, you will lead your fellow MITers outside to lots of fun and success!

You can sign up and fill out your application here:  http://alum.mit.edu/students/cclp

You all should definitely consider joining this great opportunity which creates a long-lasting bond between past, current, and future leaders of MIT!
