The César E. Chávez Leadership Institute is a no-cost summer leadership program at ASU for 80 high school students entering grades 11th and 12th. This one-of-a-kind experience embraces community service, develops leadership skills and encourages civic engagement.
The program also fosters academic and personal success within a collaborative peer environment aimed at helping students develop critical thinking skills and leveraging these skills inside and outside the classroom.
Advisors and staff answer questions about planning and paying for college, constructing personal statements and translating interests into careers.
Community leaders, elected and government officials, and staff facilitate team building, public speaking, and leadership activities.
Students will participate in a service project. In 2019, they volunteered at St. Vincent de Paul to serve food and interact with families and their children.
