What Are the Individual Outcomes for CLP Participants?
Learning and Professional Development Goals
Through the program’s unique combination of content-driven workshops reinforced by the practical application of leadership concepts through the shared Reading Week project experience, you will have the opportunity to:
- Grow your leadership capabilities – particularly by developing a different understanding of your strengths.
- Gain management or team leadership experience – leverage your own strengths and tapping into the strengths of your team members.
- Develop team development skills – play an educator role for UBC students who volunteer with a Reading Week project.
- Practice practical project management – develop a Reading Week project and achieve goals in a complex community setting with multiple stakeholders and often challenging parameters.
- Explore the different components that make up a community – discover how to thrive while building a community within your project team, as well as developing relationships with project partners (such as schools and non-profit organizations).
