Project LEAD Mission

The mission of the Project LEAD program is to provide Modesto Junior College students who are enrolled in the program, a leadership framework that will encourage students to take on leadership roles and become active participants in campus and community organizations, events and activities.   

What Is Project LEAD?

Project LEAD stands for Leadership Education And Development.  This program is hosted by MJC’s Campus Life & Student Learning Office.  The purpose of Project LEAD is to help teach general aspects of leadership as it applies to students participating in MJC student activities or thinking about participating in student activities.

What happens in Project LEAD?

Students will meet twice a month for one semester.  The program will focuses on MJC History, Communication, Time Management, Conflict Resolution, Teamwork, Service Learning and Leadership.  These sessions will run 90 minutes.

In addition to the meeting sessions, students will be paired with a campus mentor with whom they will be expected to meet at least once per month.  The last component of the program is a community service project in which everyone participates as a group. 

Why should I participate in Project LEAD?

This is a great chance to be a better leader in your club, school activity, job, or personal life.  In Project LEAD, you will be able to network with students and leadership professionals.  This program is also a fantastic reference to have on your professional resume. Program participants will receive a t-shirt and binder.   Students who graduate will receive a Project LEAD shirt, and a certificate and are recognized at the Campus Life Gala.

 

Who is eligible for Project LEAD?

Any MJC student who is enrolled in courses is eligible.  If you are a part of any MJC club, activity, sports, or student government, Project LEAD will enhance your skills.  If you are not in any activities then this program will help you connect.  The program will accept 15-20 students.
