MIT Leadership Training Institute

The MIT Leadership Training Institute is a 10-week program that helps high school students (9th-12th grades) develop their personal leadership skills and create and implement an original community service project. Students meet with Leadership Development Mentors in the first half of each session throughout the spring semester and learn soft skills like methods for collaboration, public speaking, and developing a personal leadership philosophy. Afterwards, students will meet in small groups of 2-4 students with a personal Project Mentor who will help to create a personal community service project, following each step of the process from brainstorming to implementation.
