What is service leadership?

Service Leadership is the powerful force that occurs once a person discovers their heart to serve, answers their call to lead, and summons their courage to engage.

Heart to Serve + Call to Lead + Courage to Engage = Service Leadership

Our Service Leadership Programs are designed to inspire elementary, middle school, high school, and college students, as well as adults who live with disabilities, to become engaged members of their communities who work to solve problems and help others through service.  

HEART TO SERVE
Service Leadership Programs provide opportunities for individuals to discover their heart to serve and realize that serving others is not just something they do, but it is their way of life. The service club experience helps members accept their own ability to make a difference, enhances their knowledge of their own passions and convictions, and develops their ability to empathize with those in need in their communities.

CALL TO LEAD
Service Leadership Programs help members answer their call to lead. Every person has leadership potential and these programs provide a forum for individuals to unlock theirs.  Someone with a call to lead decides to step forward when the easier choice might be to stand still. The service club experience helps members accept their own identity as a leader, enhances their knowledge of other-centered leadership, and develops their ability to transform an idea into purposeful action.

COURAGE TO ENGAGE
Service Leadership Programs are excellent forums for members to summon the courage to engage and decide to live a life of collaboration, not isolation. More than ever before, young people need to develop the capacity to effectively interact with others face-to-face.  The service club experience helps members recognize collaboration as a key to success, enhances their knowledge of how to build coalitions to address community needs, and develops their ability to build strong human connections through conversation.
