ProjectLEAD is an experiential leadership program at The University of Texas at Austin that empowers students to create positive social change in their communities. The program provides students an opportunity to discover and develop the necessary tools to transform their ideas for social impact into successful ventures.
ProjectLEAD is open to any student prepared to develop their social impact project. The program welcomes social impact projects geared towards on or off campus social issues.
Benefits of Participation
The ProjectLEAD experience consists of workshops and one on one consultations with members of the Leadership and Ethics Institute Staff to guide students through the initial phases of project development. Students participating in ProjectLEAD will:
- Deliver a project pitch that expresses the purpose and goals of their project.
- Refine a project idea that accurately reflects the needs of a community.
- Demonstrate aspects of adaptability and flexibility with the project development process.
ProjectLEAD participants attend project development workshops once a week for eight weeks. In the Fall of 2020 ProjectLEAD sessions will be offered online via Zoom on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm/CST from September 29th - November 17th.
