The MADE for Authentic Leaders program is designed to help Mason High School students discover their authentic leadership. This collaboration with members of the Mason Deerfield Chamber will allow Mason students to engage in meaningful conversation and real world experiences that will allow them to learn more about the partnerships that enhance economic development making Mason and Deerfield a strong and dynamic community.
The MADE for Authentic Leaders Program includes four focus areas for the students in the 2017-2018 group:
- Develop an understanding of being an Authentic Leader through an annual leadership symposium.
- Equip students with knowledge, skills, and qualities needed for leadership through meaningful conversations with Chamber businesses while observing workplace culture, and developing experiential learning connections and expanding their network.
- Help equip students with knowledge, skills, and qualities needed for leadership through a book study.
- Build leadership through meaningful engagement in real community issues where students can develop awareness and appreciation for the culture of others and begin to promote cross-cultural leadership through an Action Team. The Action Team will provide students with honest feedback on leadership skills and encourage them to consider coming back to Mason-Deerfield to begin their careers and families.
