The Junior Leadership Project is an experiential requirement of the ELP 301 course which aims to put students into a real leadership position within the WCC community. Examples include students being a prefect, being supervisors in their Work-Study position, being an Outdoor Leader, teaching CCD at Holy Rosary. The project is required to take at least six hours to complete and is followed by a reflection paper about the experience and what was gained by it. Students are evaluated by a chosen mentor before and after their experience to assist them in measuring their leadership abilities as well as growth in leadership skills attained through the project.
