Leadership Academy Sharpens Future Leaders' Skills

Local youths concentrate on self-awareness at a new management program at California State University, Sacramento. The Leadership Academy will begin July 9 and continue through July 20 for junior and senior high school students. Eric Roseguard, CSUS professor of the recreation and leisure department, will instruct the program. Participating students can sharpen their leadership skills and receive two academic units.

This program is designed to help students develop leadership skills through activities such as team projects, readings and assignments. "To be a successful leader, it is important to know yourself, so I want to increase their self-awareness," says Roseguard.

Roseguard has a doctorate in leadership and plans to provide various activities this summer. Students will attend a ropes course, a visit to the CSUS Aquatic Center and a trip to the capital to see how leadership skills are applied in a political setting.

"All exercises will have a leadership component," says Roseguard. "From listening to local political leaders to participating in leadership roles in team projects." There will also be activities to exercise critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Students can apply by contacting Liz Hough at (916) 278-4433 ext.141. Deadline for applications is July 8. Applicants will be evaluated on their leadership experience, extra curricular activities, transcripts, academic test scores and a letter of recommendation.
