How do I know what path is right for me?

The three paths are in place to help you pick what works for you. If you are unsure, get in touch with the leadership team and we can help you pick the path that works for you.

I don’t have a lot of leadership experience; I don’t think the Student Leadership Academy is for me. What should I do?

We believe that leadership is for everyone. Leadership is a skill that can be learnt and develops overtime. The process for leadership is ongoing and begins with the first step! The Student Leadership Academy can help you and guide you through the process. Connect with us to find out how we can help you get leading!
