Spring Workshops — March 9 Sessions
All sessions take place on Thursday, March 9, from 6–7:30 p.m.
Transition Planning/Leadership Transitions
Facilitator: LEAD Center Staff
Too often, organization leaders dedicate themselves to successfully leading their groups for an academic year and at the end of their terms, leave the positions without time spent making sure the incoming officers have the opportunity to be trained. When that happens, all the information regarding the previous year’s lessons learned are not passed on to the incoming officers, thus slowing down their progress. Participants in this workshop will learn how to effectively transition incoming officers, and take advantage of the momentum gained in the previous year.
Next Steps after Cal and Post-Grad Service Options
Facilitator: Carrie Donovan, Public Service Center
Entering the post-college world can be daunting. For many of us, the clear path that guided us through college requirements is suddenly gone and it becomes necessary to forge a new one.Through this training, participants will engage in activities to explore possible paths, as well as some helpful practical skills such as informational interviewing. Participants will also explore ways to continue engaging in meaningful service, both professionally and personally after your time at Cal.
Facilitator: Rosa Ortega, Public Service Center
This workshop will be an opportunity for those who are working in schools and with students to explore conditions underlying your service. Participants will be engaged in activities that seek to understand the history behind gendered, economic and racialized impacts of the US education systems. Activities exploring strategies for resisting educational inequities will be explored with an eye towards how to support the most marginalized within schools.
