LEAD Harper: Student Leadership Program

Level Up Your Skills to Land that Dream Job!

  • Discover your unique strengths
  • Participate in fun and interactive sessions
  • Content presented by experienced experts
  • Build new friendships

For the 2023-2024 school year

LEAD Harper will focus on the National Association of Colleges and Employers’ identified eight skills needed for future career success. These eight skills will be broken up into one highly interactive and hands on session per month. Students who attend one session will be given a certificate stating that they are competent in that skill, and students who attend all eight sessions will receive a “career ready” designation. Both options will help build your student leadership skills for use at Harper and become a great addition to your resume.
