The LSP Experience
The LSP experience is centered on three components: educational seminars, a civic engagement project, and networking. The seminars challenge class members to look at the problems and decision-making processes in our community, state and nation. They will work closely with their classmates as they plan one of the program’s seminars and collaborate on their chosen class project that benefits a local nonprofit organization. During the LSP experience, class members will have the opportunity to meet community leaders to discuss issues that will help them identify ways to become more involved in our community, learn to think critically about the challenges and decision-making processes in our local, state and national community.
The LSP curriculum consists of a variety of seminars that occur between December and June. Seminars range from half to full days and include a three day trip to Tallahassee for state government during the legislative season.
In addition to attending seminars, class members will have meetings to plan the seminar they’re responsible for planning and moderating, as well as will engage with one another and community leaders to complete their service project. This civic engagement project usually consists of fundraising to renovate a nonprofit’s facility, culminating in a sweat-equity project day.
