Leaders 4SC is a summer workshop for middle school (rising 5th to 9th grade) students on leadership, communication, decision-making, and advocacy. Our goal is to train the next generation of civic leaders: members of a community who actively participate in society.
By the end of each week, students will have:
You can login anytime during “workshop hours” every day and interact live with staff and other students.
If you miss part of a day or activity, there will be a replacement activity you can do on your own to make sure you don’t fall behind or get a lesser experience.
You can participate in the workshop at any time of the day with the pre-recorded activities and lectures and still learn everything.
There will be at least one staff member available in “office hours” between 8am EST and 12am EST to help you with your assignments or explain something if you are doing it on your own.
Students may attend any combination of weeks:
Session 1 — Writing Focus: July 5-9 (M-F)
Session 2 — Speaking Focus: July 12-16 (M-F)
Session 3 — Writing Focus: July 19-23 (M-F)
Session 4 — Speaking Focus: July 26-30 (M-F)
Session 5 — Writing Focus: August 2-6 (M-F)
Session 6 — Speaking Focus: August 9-13 (M-F)
Live sessions will occur 11am to 3PM EDT
Staff will be available from 8am to 12am EDT
We use a custom platform that allows students to watch live and recorded lectures, complete group activities and online games/puzzles, and submit all assignments from a tablet/computer from home.
The workshop will require students to have access to a laptop/computer/tablet during the workshop times or they can watch any of our recorded lectures and do the activities from anywhere.
