During the 2nd year of the Pioneer Leadership Program (PLP), students participate in a group-based Community Change Initiative.  The nature of the Community Change Initiative (CCI) is to envision, develop and bring to fruition real and lasting community change in collaboration with others. The initiative will require at least 6-8 months to complete, lasting through April or May each year and culminating with a public presentation of their work and learning. The underlying purpose of the CCI is to apply and reinforce the skills and insights gained throughout the PLP course work. Without this "hands-on" application of knowledge and skills, development as a leader is limited. The initiatives allow students to test out their current abilities as well as develop in new ways.
