  • Manage stress more effectively – Great leadership is not born out of good times but when faced with adversity and challenges
  • Build confidence– particularly in public speaking (we build confidence throughout our lives – no matter how confident we are right now, we can always stretch and grow)
  • Refine social skills– even those who are already outgoing can enhance their communication and listening skills
  • Sharpen interpersonal and leadership skills
  • Strengthen advocacy & communication skills– it’s not just what we say but ‘how’ we say it…
  • Prepare for college interviews
  • Eligible for 2 college credits
