Jenks Leadership Program for Undergraduates
The current group of Jenks leaders with Winston Center benefactor Bob Winston.
The Jenks Leadership Program (JLP) identifies and prepares men and women to take up leadership roles in the service of others and the common good. The Jenks Leadership Program (JLP) is the signature student program of the Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics. The JLP consists of three modules with each module taking place over a semester
Module One (Spring Semester I): Individual Leadership
Module one will consist of a series of workshops that work on developing participants’ individual leadership skills.
Module Two (Fall Semester I): Team Leadership
Module two’s workshops will focus on the dynamics of team leadership with participants being grouped into small teams (4-5 members) and each team planning a service project.
Module Three (Spring Semester II): Service Project
During module three, the teams will execute their service projects.
The application process is open to all Boston College freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. The goal is to admit 20-25 students into the program each year.
