Joan of Arc Leadership Program

Joan of Arc Leadership Program

Emerging Leaders

Emerging Leaders is the first tier of the Joan of Arc Leadership program. This introductory element exposes students to fundmental components of leadership based on the Social Change Model. During these series of workshops, students will learn about the society/community domain of the Social Change Model and how it is inextricably linked to citizen leadership. 

The program will consist of seven topical workshops with corresponding structured reflection. Students participating in Emerging Leaders will also be expected to complete 5 hours of community service and complete a written evaluation and one-on-one feedback meeting with the Associate Director of Leadership and Service Learning. 

Advanced Components

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

For SHIELD and for PALDRON, students will need to complete seven topical workshops with corresponding structured reflection. Students participating in Shield and Paldron will also be expected to complete 5 hours of community service and complete a written evaluation and one-on-one feedback meeting with the Associate Director of Leadership and Service Learning.

Students who reach the final tier (GAUNTLET) will need to attend required workshops.  Students will need to complete seven topical workshops with corresponding structured reflection. Students participating in Gauntlet will also be expected to complete 5 hours of community service and complete a written evaluation and one-on-one feedback meeting with the Associate Director of Leadership and Service Learning. In addition, students in Gauntlet will be required to create a digital story detailing their full Joan of Arc Program experience and how it has shaped their understanding of citizen leadership and influenced their experiences and leadership development at Longwood University.
