This is a 12-month (Julu 2017 – June 2018) leadership program for incoming Big Island high school juniors (Class of 2019). Program’s primary goal is to help students develop “practical application of problem-solving skills, communications techniques, and leadership approaches to facilitating collaborative solutions that benefit the collective.”
“WHY: Our views and actions are impacted by split second decisions based on the thousands of information feeds coming to us through social media, digital technology, and the coconut wireless. How often do we sit down and meet with the people we disagree with to ask why they feel the way they do? How often do we sit back and wait for someone else to fix the problem? If everyone acts this way, then who takes action? If not you, then who? If not now, then when? GRACE Leadership Journey explores reallife issues and provides skills and techniques to help you make a difference!”
Application (form and letters of recommendation) due by May 5, 2017.
Space is limited to 15 students.
