How to Become an Official L.E.A.D.er
L.E.A.D.ers are an important part of the North Hennepin community. They are the students who exhibit leadership in various capacities and have committed to furthering their leadership through the three tracks offered through the L.E.A.D. Program. Students who attend four L.E.A.D. program workshops or three L.E.A.D. In The Wild experiences are eligible to become a L.E.A.D.er.
Work-study students attending to meet the work-study requirement must attend at least two L.E.A.D. sessions, one in the fall and one in the spring. If schedule conflicts interfere with attending sessions, work-study students may request permission from their supervisor to attend a similar session in its place.
Club & Org leaders are required to attend or review two sessions "How to Host an Event" and one other session.
