Often students progressing through to higher education levels, the workforce or community life find they are on a steep learning curve with regards to working with others. These programs introduce students to leadership concepts and give them direct practice, experience and feedback at leading others. They actively explore responsibility for choices and actions and how those impact on those around them. The leadership skills are relevant to their current environment, and will also help prepare them to cope and thrive as they progress to new environments.
