Since 2014, the AIMS Learning to Lead Workshop has been dedicated to equipping educators with the knowledge and skills to help every student grow as a leader. Our core belief is that all students can lead if given the right preparation and guidance. We also know that student leadership thrives in a school culture of respect, compassion, and equity. These ideals sit at the heart of this year’s conference theme, Pathways to Civil Leadership. In breakout sessions co-facilitated by AIMS students and faculty, participants will hear the stories of student leadership from across divisions and disciplines. Participants will also gain access to tangible models and support structures used to guide the work. We invite you to join this workshop and become part of a growing community of educators committed to the pedagogy of leadership.
