Student Development Opportunities

Green Leadership Mentors

The Green Leadership Certificate uses the mentor relationships to promote self reflection and continued learning once the workshops have ended. Mentors are assigned 1-2 students who may share interests, career aspirations, or other attributes. Each mentor meets with his/her mentees once a month, September -April. Mentors help the student consider his or her strengths, weaknesses, values and commitments, and are provided a variety of resources and materials to assist them.

Student Interaction: 1:1 meetings
Time Commitment: 1-2 Hours per Month (Oct - May)

Gold Leadership Advisors

In the Gold Leadership Certificate, a group of 6-8 students works together to complete a Social Action Project, designed to address a community issue and then present their project at Scholars Day. We rely on advisors to meet once a month with their group to provide challenge and support. Advisors help group members realize what it means to collaborate, how to achieve a common purpose and how to navigate conflict with civility.

Student Interaction: 7:1 Group meetings
Time Commitment: 1-2 Hours per Month (Sept - April)

In particular, we encourage alumni to come back and present, but are more than happy to welcome employees and community members as well.
