The Apprentice Program is a practical leadership opportunity offered second semester for freshmen who have completed the Emerging Leaders program. Apprenticeships allow students to gain valuable skills while contributing to a meaningful campus project.
The freshman student works one-on-one with an upper-class student on a large-scale campus project. This may also be an opportunity for the apprentice and department to see if there is a fit for future employment or a leadership role.
Each apprentice must commit an average of 20 hours to the project and attend group meetings with other apprentices and coaches. He/she may take a role of committee chair, sub-committee chair, or a role the coach and apprentice define together.
Ideally, the apprenticeship will provide the apprentice with opportunities to test his/her leadership skills in the areas of: decision making, problem solving, how to understand and utilize new and existing systems, team skills and technology.
