Leadership in action: Spartan Ready® Leadership Exchange

Kennesaw State University

Participants will engage in a six-month exploration of leadership, service, and the social issues of homelessness and poverty as they exist in the United States, Tampa and Kennesaw/Atlanta, GA. Student partnerships will be made and, through these collaborative relationships, a team project focused on homelessness will be completed. Students will engage in a series of leadership sessions related to these areas over the sixth-month-long experience. Students will connect with Kennesaw State students on an immersive, experiential, service-learning trip off-campus.
