The INVST Community Leadership Program
The Community Leadership Program is a life-altering educational experience that exposes students to what is and cultivates them as leaders to work for what could be. Each year, we admit up to 18 CU students who are committed to making a positive difference with their lives. INVST students are comprehensively trained over the course of two years. Specifically, students attend two theory classes, four skills-training classes, and two month‑long summer service learning experiences, one domestic and one international. In addition, students serve at least six hours each week as volunteer staff members with community-based organizations in internships in their first year, and collectively design, implement and evaluate community leadership projects during their second year. Throughout the program, students learn and practice skills such as meeting facilitation, collaborative decision-making, conflict resolution, fundraising, organizing, and public speaking. Upon completion, students receive the University of Colorado Certificate in the Study and Practice of Leadership. They are also eligible to receive education awards from AmeriCorps.
