The Leader in Training program is a leadership program for Eagle Hill students who want to continue to develop and practice life-long leadership skills. The program blends workshops, supervised opportunities to assist the younger summer students, special off-campus trips and service learning with classroom and camp activities. Leaders-in-Training (LIT’s) will also earn credits that meet enrichment requirements for the EHS academic year.
Workshops and training sessions will include topics such as:
- Ropes Course
- Working with kids
- Lifesaving skills
- Community service
- Opportunities to practice these skills in a supportive setting
LIT’s will also participate in weekly service learning projects. LIT’s are a distinct group of students. They are summer students with a specific curriculum and set of responsibilities, but they are not interns or faculty; they are in training to become better leaders and to perhaps take on greater responsibility in summers to come.
- To develop leadership skills and better prepare LIT's to be future leaders on and off campus.
- To provide veteran EHS students a higher level of both responsibility and privilege in the summer program.
- To assist students in developing skills they can utilize throughout the academic year and in life.
