In today’s marketplace, organizations are looking for experienced leaders that are ethical, driven, well-organized communicators with the ability to motivate, empower, and energize others. Completing Student Leadership Academy (SLA) shows you went the extra mile and already have mastered these skills and you have proof. It will be an excellent achievement to add to your resume!

To help NMJC students prepare for the challenges they will face both during their college years and beyond, the SLA offers training in marketable leadership skills, which also lay the foundation for effective leadership and are necessary to advance in most fields.

SLA is organized into three levels. Each level progresses and builds upon what you have already learned in the areas of interpersonal skills, communication, and leadership. You can go at your own pace. If you complete all three levels, you will receive a certificate, an electronic badge, and a specially designed medallion to be worn at commencement.
