Joan of Arc Leadership Program

Joan of Arc Leadership Program

Emerging Leaders

This introductory element is designed for students to become self-aware. Individuals who are aware of their thoughts, feelings, strengths, and weaknesses are well prepared to succeed in a variety of leadership experiences.

The program will consist of seven topical workshops. Students participating in Emerging Leaders will also be expected to 5 hours of community service and submit a reflection paper outlining how these topics have impacted their role as a citizen leader.

Advanced Components

Students will have the opportunity to complete three other levels of leadership development if they choose (SHIELD, PALDRON, and GAUNTLET). In each of the advanced components, the emphasis is on self, group, and community/change with each component exploring these topics in compounding depth.

For SHIELD and for PALDRON, students will need to complete seven topical workshops. Participants in each of these advanced components will also be expected to complete 5 hours of community service and submit a reflection paper outlining how these workshops have contributed to their development as a cititzen leader.

Students who reach the final component (GAUNTLET) will need to attend four required workshops and facilitate one additional workshop for the preceding levels of the Joan of Arc Program.  To complete the facilitation of the workshop, Gauntlet participants will be paired with a Presentation Mentor.  Participants will again be expected to complete 5 hours of community service and submit a reflection paper detailing their full Joan of Arc Program experience and how it has impacted their experiences and development at Longwood University. 

For Fall 2014, Emerging Leaders, Shield and Paldron sections of Joan of Arc will be held on Monday evenings from 6:00pm-7:00pm in the Student Union.

For Fall 2014, Gauntlet will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm in the Student Union.
