The Irish Leadership Initiative will provide STVM students with opportunities to develop the knowledge and skills required to be effective leaders through high school and beyond. This initiative incorporates STVM's mission statement and the Marianist charism to prepare students to recognize opportunities to have impact on the groups and communities to which they belong.
Some of the programs in the initiative include:
- Sessions with positional leaders (e.g. team captains, peer ministers) that focus on effectiveness in leadership roles;
- Half-day retreat sessions with class cohorts that focus on individual and group accountability; and
- Opportunities to give life to these leadership principles outside the STVM community.
