Week 1: Introduction

Quote of the Week:

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." -John Quincy Adams

Week 1 is an introduction to the Emerging Leader Series. Participants go through a general overview of the 8 week curriculum as well as the expectations of the facilitators as well as the participants. They also sign a learning agreement stating that they will hold themselves accountable with being on time, being prepared, and being "present."

The participants take part in an activity that is called "Tell Your Story." Each student is given a large piece of flip chart paper and asked to put their story, whatever and however that might be, onto the paper. We then go around and share our stories with the group enabling us to break some of the barriers and walls that may have been put up when entering a new environment.

There is a weekly self-reflection and evaluation activity that occurs where students think about that weeks session and the information obtained from it. This is a chance for the students to let us know what they like and what they didn't like and what they think works or doesn't work.
