The Leadership Program at Strathcona is one of Scona’s pillars of excellence. It is a program that combines the fun of team building with the meaning of service to create memorable experiences that last a lifetime.
The classes are both high energy and reflective in nature. We will provide you with an opportunity to explore leadership, develop leadership skills and abilities, and, most importantly, to grow and develop as individuals while making a difference in their school and community.
The Leadership courses are offered at the 15, 25, and 35 level. Students graduating from Leadership will walk away having collaborated and contributed to individual, group and school-wide projects. As you engage in the course you will work to strengthen and create new relationships and hone in your interpersonal skills all while helping build a sense of community here at Scona.
Each level of Leadership builds upon the last with new lessons, themes and projects often decided upon by the students. What can you expect from an average Leadership class? Be willing to move, forge new connections, and reach new understandings in an interactive space.
In the words of our past students…
“The leadership program at Scona is that class that you didn't know you needed. During my time in leadership, I have learned so many life skills that range from empathy to public speaking. This program gives me the opportunity to execute my big ideas and provides a space where I can be myself.”
“Scona's leadership program is rich with opportunities for you to grow as a person. It pushes you out of your comfort zone in the best way possible! The sense of community, aptitude for service, and newfound confidence I gained throughout my leadership experience are invaluable.”
Since 2009, students in Leadership have organized the annual Scona Initiative. Our model for success: mass involvement = mass impact! Together as a school and community we have raised over 3.5 million dollars for local and global organizations. Check out more at sconainitiative.ca
