Kickoff Session – Two Days:

Take a deep dive to answer the question, “how do my early learnings influence my behavior and how is that behavior perceived by other people?” By answering these questions, participants will explore the perceptions that others may have of them, how those perceptions are caused by one's behaviors, and discuss how cultural values may influence these behaviors. Participants will also gain awareness of and practice leadership skills in a safe learning environment as they participate in several interpersonal, interactive and hands-on teambuilding exercises. At the end of the two days participants will be assigned a community project to complete during the duration of the program. One of the hardest things a leader can do is lead a volunteer organization as it truly tests their ability to influence without authority. **Attendance at the 2-day kick-off is mandatory to participate in the program.
