Calling All Female Students

Launch Your Leadership Journey is a free leadership development program offered each Fall semester at Asnuntuck Community College which offers women the tools they need to be successful leaders in college, in their communities, and in their careers.

The design of the program is experiential and interactive, stretching the students outside their comfort zones to promote leadership growth. It provides life-changing leadership development experiences for women who passionately desire to become leaders.

This program strives to help women build the self-confidence and self-esteem needed to become leaders in their families, colleges, communities, and careers.

Among the topics are addressing gender bias, problem-solving skills, leading with authority, assertiveness skills, addressing conflict, cultural sensitivity, and networking. 

Students chosen to participate in the sessions gain practical experience in leading change by working in small teams to plan and execute a social action project during the semester.  The teams are guided by female leadership mentors and facilitators who are highly experienced, local leaders, leadership consultants, and trainers.

To be selected for the three-month program, students must submit an application which includes a minimum GPA requirement, a written statement that explains their interest in developing leadership abilities, and attend an interview.
