Interested in Leading Off Campus?

Are you a college student leader looking to take your leadership to the next level? Or do you know a student who fits this description?
Leading Off Campus provides college students with an opportunity to engage with diverse student leaders from other area colleges and build additional credentials beyond their classroom experiences. It helps introduce them to the many ways leadership takes shape outside their academic world, and teaches them as much about the community as it does about themselves.

Kadian Hall, a senior at University of Hartford, participated in the 2016 class and shares about his experience:
“Leadership Greater Hartford has helped to enhance my leadership skills thanks to the fun and innovative presentations and workshops. LGH has taught me how to work with other leaders who share strong ideas like me and I learned so much about Hartford that I didn’t know.”
Help empower a college student you know to continue their leadership journey!  We are now accepting applications for the 2017 class of Leading Off Campus which will begin on February 3, 2017.
