Each year the class is divided into 5-6 teams, and each team takes on a civic project. The purpose of these projects are:
- To provide a laboratory for participants to practice new ways of being a leader and gain insights on the impact they have on a team and other participants, and take-on person goals of leadership transformation
- To develop a sense of personal efficacy – “I can change things” and collective efficacy “Together, we can make a difference”
- To make an impact in the community
Last year we worked on 5 civic projects: Aspen CORE, Habitat for Humanity RFV, Roaring Fork School District – Pre Collegiate Program, Garfield County Libraries and Aspen Community Foundation – Enrichment Wednesday’s.
Deadline to submit project ideas: September 25th at 5P.
