Student leadership development activities and resources

Student leadership is a high school elective course. There is not a designated
 resource for instruction and curriculum to teach leadership at Del Oro High School in
 Loomis, California. There are many different resources for new or current activities
 directors to use to teach various leadership skills to the leadership students; however,
 there are so many different strategies, ideas, lessons, and topics available that it can be
 very overwhelming locating and selecting a cohesive set of activities to structure a
 high school student leadership course. Therefore, this project is designed to provide
 the researcher with a collection of resources specific to the concepts and principles
 typical in a leadership course. These resources will be tailored specifically to the
 curriculum and instruction of the student leadership program at Del Oro High School.
