- In addition to the locations above, A+ Summer Leadership is available on the campus of UC Berkeley.
We developed our summer leadership training programs around the premise that students should strive to be effective leaders who demonstrate excellence by their approach and by their accomplishment -- the kind of leaders that, by virtue of their superior service, will prompt a teacher to write them an uncommonly powerful letter of recommendation for college, or will justify having a teacher or even their peers consider nominating and advocating for that student for truly special awards and selective honors.
Our leadership-focused offerings have been constructed with the view that the most significant way to encourage students into earning and taking real future leadership roles is to develop the skills and capabilities that will enable students to speak up in class, solve problems creatively and to communicate with confidence.
Enthusiasm for leadership is a universal goal of most leadership programs and camps, but it is in our view too low an accomplishment to be one of the primary goals of the program, as most students come into the program enthusiastic to assume leadership roles and 'make a mark'. Education Unlimited’s leadership programs go far beyond promoting a general sense of enthusiasm for the idea of being a leader, and instead help students develop a sense of confidence and of perspective such that leadership is seen not as the exclusive goal in and of itself, but rather as a means to greater accomplishment in one's life, a tool for personal empowerment, and as a springboard to provide meaningful service to one's community.
