What is Lone Star Leadership College?

Lone Star Leadership College provides an opportunity to educate and mentor emerging student leaders for diverse roles of leadership linking the Lone Star College System (LSCS) and the community.  The goal of the program is to develop and enhance the leadership skills of its student participants, while encouraging an appreciation for giving back to the community.

Intensive monthly sessions in the six-month program allow students to explore and examine the local economy, government, arts and culture and more.  Participants also receive applicable skills training based on the StrengthsQuest program, a national leadership training course.  The program, which starts in October and concludes in April, also provides students the opportunity to work in a team environment during a community service project.

Applicants must commit to attending all sessions, be currently enrolled at a Lone Star College campus or center, and plan to enroll for the fall and subsequent spring semesters.  Applications are available through the Student Life/Student Activities Office at each campus or online.  A selection committee reviews the applications and five students are selected from each campus and/or centers.

There is no cost to the participant.
