Leadership Academy

The ECOC Leadership Academy is designed to prepare our Student Ambassadors to introduce and assist their assigned speakers at the annual Summit on January 16, 2021 as well as to enhance our students' leadership capabilities, confidence, and ability to pursue college.

  • Student Ambassadors are nominated by counselors from selected high schools in Districts 2, 3, 8, 11,  and 49.
  • Student Ambassadors work in groups of 10 and are partnered with area College Students who act as Mentors for them.
  • Student Ambassadors will attend Leadership Training at Colorado College in October 2020 and January 2021.  They will meet with their college mentors  at their schools in  November and December (exact dates TBD).
  • Student Ambassadors will represent ECOC at the Summit on January 16, 2021 at Colorado College.
  • After the 2018/2019 Leadership Academy and  2019 Summit, 98% of the Student  Ambassadors indicated that they would be pursuing higher education upon completion of high school.
