Program Outline: The one-day seminar will enroll young women between the ages of 16 and 24. Participants will be recruited through announcements sent out through the APSU announcement system and local press releases. The young women will be taught a series of courses on basic leadership styles and development and assigned a service-learning project and present their work at the end of the session. By utilizing service learning and political advocacy as instructional strategies, students will increase their political efficacy and community service advocacy.
