The newest installment of the Emerging Leaders series encourages outreach activities like volunteering, attending city council meetings, or joining organizations.

The offices of Student Engagement and Activities (SEA) of San Jacinto College are offering another session of a brand-new workshop titled Take Action! on Nov. 18 as part of the Emerging Leaders series. Take Action! is one of many workshops SEA offers to help students build practical leadership skills.

Samantha Martinez, the South Campus SEA Specialist leading the group, said the session features exercises aimed at encouraging participants to get more involved with their communities.

“They will self-reflect on their local outreach mindsets and ways they can better their outlook towards social change,” Martinez said. “There will be activities on perspective and how they can remain open-minded to those around them.”

Moreover, Martinez said students leave the workshop with a plan to implement their potential community involvement, whether it is through volunteering, attending city council meetings, or joining outreach organizations. 

“I would hope that students feel encouraged,” she added, “that they can make a positive change in the communities they live in.”

Take Action! takes place from 1 p.m. until 2 p.m. on Nov. 18 in Room 202/208 in the Student Center (C14) on the Central Campus.
