"By helping students develop a narrative about the setting that explains their frustrations while projecting positive engagement and success in the setting, you can greatly improve their sense of belonging and achievement– which done at a critical time could redirect the course of their lives."— Claude Steele, Whistling Vivaldi
The core of the CEO Network's work focuses on a weekly workshop that explores the value and purpose of a student’s investment in his or her education. Our goal is to develop exemplary leaders who:
- Brand their uniqueness
- Use resources to overcome challenges
- Leverage co-curricular opportunities
- Team build to reach goals
- Plan their academic and skill development
In addition, reflective points are built in to reaffirm character, self-motivation, and identity beyond their professional goals. It is our hope that students will use this newfound awareness to amplify their roles within their personal lives, communities, and every day challenges.
We aim to challenge the status quo, one leader at a time. Together we can level the playing field.
