Loyola Leadership Lab

Hands-on exercises, game play, and simulations coupled with engaging presentations, everyday leader spotlights/profiles and small group exercises/roleplaying activities will provide the foundation and springboard for each student to discover their “Leader Within” and take the first steps in “Designing Their Leadership Life and Path” through high school, college, and beyond.

Additional focus will be placed on learning leadership skill-sets such as design-thinking/problem-solving, meeting management and facilitation, presentation techniques, team-building/team management. This course is open only to Loyola High School students.
