The Leadership Exploration and Advancement Program (L.E.A.P.) aims to engage students in the discovery of personal leadership identities through a variety of seven interactive sessions during the fall quarter. Participants will be exposed to the Social Change Model and explore its application for the settings Cal State L.A. leaders will encounter; the classroom, clubs and organizations, the workplace, and the larger community. Students participating in L.E.A.P will also be able to participate in off campus developmental opportunities that will challenge them mentally and physically.
This program is offered various Fridays from 10:00am-12:00pm during Fall quarter. This introductory session will provide students with a complete overview of the series and provide them with the information they need to "Take the L.E.A.P." Don't miss out on this unique experience!

The Center for Student Involvement maintains a Leadership Library with information on retreat planning, team builders, enhancing communication skills, officer transitions, and tips for running a successful meeting. All recognized student organization members can access the information either within the Center or at their leisure through the book/video loan program.
