Each year, Student Life & Leadership Offices throughout the Maricopa Community College District host a three-day retreat designed to strengthen the leadership, life, and wellness skills of students.

This is a great opportunity to meet students from other colleges around the District and learn valuable leadership skills. It is a weekend filled with fun, friends, and new experiences. We encourage all current or hopeful student leaders to apply!

LeaderShape Defines Leadership

Leadership involves living in a state of possibility; making a commitment to a vision; developing relationships to move that vision into action; and sustaining a high level of integrity.

Effective leadership takes place within the context of a supportive community and results in positive change.

The LeaderShape Institute is an interactive, energizing, and unique experience that builds leadership skills no other program can match. And since 1986, more than 20,000 participants from all over the world have graduated from the program.

But be prepared! It is six days of non-stop self-discovery and learning from practical experiences that build your leadership concepts and abilities. It’s go, go, go, 12 hours a day…and you’ll love it!
