The program requires a substantial time commitment. This includes community service, weekly seminars, leadership courses, and mentoring
As a CLC Scholar you will:
Participate in community service: Scholars have mandatory hours of service to complete each semester. On top of that we ask scholars to participate in a group service project. These service groups are for scholars to learn about organizations and make a difference in the lives of others. There are many projects to choose from and we ask scholars to select group services that will be unique and meaningful. For more information click here.
Attend leadership courses: There are three required courses to gain comprehensive understanding of leadership theory. During the last year in CLC, scholars will take a capstone course that challenges you to apply leadership skills gained through college.

Attend Wednesday night seminar: Scholars are require to attend these Seminars on Wednesday evening's to listen to inspiration leaders from the community.
Mentor incoming CLC Scholars: Each year incoming scholars are paired with existing scholars to work together and provide academic and personal support.
