GapBuster’s Leaders In Training program has been a cornerstone of our organization since its inception. The program aims to foster essential leadership skills in middle and high school students, enabling them to make a positive impact on their community. The LIT program stands apart from other programs due to its focus on academic, civil, and cultural enrichment, college tours, and leadership conferences.
Our program offers a multitude of benefits to its participants. For instance, students in our program can participate in Toastmasters Gavel Club, which we call the GapBuster Gavaliers. This club provides students with a platform to develop their public speaking, listening, and leadership skills. Through Toastmasters, students learn how to articulate their ideas and present themselves with poise and confidence.
Moreover, students in our program will have ample opportunities to earn community service and student-service learning hours. These opportunities are critical for building leadership skills and fostering a sense of service among our participants.
In summary, GapBuster’s Leaders In Training program provides a valuable experience for middle and high school students seeking to develop their leadership skills and earn community service hours.
