Throughout school-based and city-wide Leadership Clubs, students learn the ASPIRA “process of awareness, analysis and action“. The purpose of the ASPIRA Leadership club is to provide a forum for students to become aware of their culture and community while developing their leadership skills and advancing academically. Through the Leadership Club, students will have an opportunity to express their views and appreciate the opinions of their peers. Additionally, each club plans and implements at least one community service project that allows them to give back to their community.
Each club is led by a cabinet consisting of a President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary. In addition, the clubs plan activities through work with three on-going club committees: Cultural Education, Community Action and Public Relations. All Leadership Clubs are represented at the ASPIRA Clubs Federation by their elected officers. Leadership Club meetings are facilitated by a Leadership Development Specialist who is a part-time ASPIRA employee. In order to be considered an official ASPIRA Leadership Club, all clubs must follow the Leadership club guidelines established by ASPIRA.
