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!

LeaderShape at MIT: An IAP Must!

The time has come again to get yourself ready for the experience that is LeaderShape!

An international organization with opportunities and programs on college campuses everywhere, LeaderShape takes the discussion around leadership beyond whether you are President or Secretary, beyond “Do we have the budget to order Pad Thai for 200 people?,” beyond any awards ceremony.  LeaderShape is an experience that will help you discover, put into words, hone, plan for, and get absolutely pumped for your own personal vision of leadership and the positive change you want to bring to the world!

DON’T BE THIS CHILD! Take change into your own hands and create your own vision for leadership that may change the world!

LeaderShape is an intensive 6-day leadership development and community-building program over IAP each year.  Join MIT faculty and staff and 70 of your fellow undergraduates for this incredible experience!

Applications are now open at web.mit.edu/leadershape – so, go, click on the link now and apply… now!

The SAO does not recommend typing DWIGHT in repeatedly on your application to LeaderShape. That isn’t very leader-y.

LeaderShape will be held January 16th-21st, 2015, over IAP and transportation to the retreat location is provided from campus!

The Application Deadline is November 7th, which is like soon, so… like… get on it.  Again, apply here: web.mit.edu/leadershape

A Leadership Experience for First-Year and Sophomore Students!

Emerging Leaders Conference can help you find out!

Emerging Leaders Conference can help you find out!

Welcome to our new First-Year students and welcome back to our Sophomores!  We hope the first week of classes has treated you well, and you are all settling in for what should be an eventful year.

Many of you may be looking to get involved, or are looking for that next step in your involvement, or are looking for an opportunity to reflect on the work you have done thus far while here at MIT.  The Student Activities Office wants to be a partner in that process with you, and offers the Emerging Leaders Conference as an exclusive opportunity for first-year and sophomore students to learn more about leadership, their own personal style of leadership, and where that can take them here at MIT and beyond!

The Conference takes place at the Endicott House from September 27th-28th, with transportation to this great off-campus retreat location provided.

Interested students can register to attend here: http://studentlife.mit.edu/sao/leadership/elc, but only the first 30 who apply will be accepted – after that, folks will be placed on a wait-list, so register soon!

The SAO wants to be sure you have every opportunity to excel, grow, and challenge yourself both inside and outside the classroom, lab, or dorm during your time here at MIT, and the Emerging Leaders Conference is a great first step on that path!
