Lead Like Me - Student/Advisor Leadership Workshop
Training Student Leaders
OAESP's Student Leadership Workshop "Lead Like Me" has trained more than 600 Oklahoma students and their advisors to be successful leaders on their campuses. During the one day workshop, 4th-8th grade students and their advisors learn to create a dynamic student leadership team. This is a great PTA/PTO project to fund for your students!!! Please consider hosting a "Lead Like Me" session at your school.
