We recognize that aspiring candidates for leadership positions have a great deal to learn about the work environment, duties, roles, challenges, and demands. To assist in the learning process, Leadership Westside participants are encouraged to engage in a variety of additional experiences when creating their learning path. Some of these experiences may be completed as part of a shadowing experience, while others can be experienced as needed for each participant. We strive to meet the needs of all of our leaders and supporting them through personalized learning opportunities, real life experiences, and collaborative groups.
Sessions will be offered by Westside Community School staff and local experts supporting the interests of our Leadership Westside members.
Leadership Westside members will complete sessions using courses from lynda.com. allowing members to learn at their own, place, pace, and space.
Leadership Westside members will have opportunities for internships and job shadowing experiences during their year two journey.
