LeadHer Chapters on a College Campus
LeadHer chapters are open to women of all ages; starting in high school. College is a unique age because it is in their collegiate years that so many find their faith while many others walk away. There is a burden and a need to connect women in this age group to their leadership potential, to their community and most importantly to Jesus. Starting a local chapters is a great way to connect college-aged girls, staff and community members. One of our LeadHer college members shared with us:
“My LeadHer chapter brought amazing connections into my life; women who became mentors, leaders and friends. Through each of them, I also made unique connections with the community- helping to make my college town feel more like my hometown. When I was struggling to see myself as a leader, LeadHer challenged me with a different perspective. I realized that I already had influence and am presented with opportunities every single day to make an impact. I learned through being involved in a local chapter that I don’t have to wait till graduation to become a world changer for Jesus- I already am one!”
College campuses are a perfect location for a Leadher chapter because for many freshmen and sophomores, coming to college means leaving home and settling in a community that is unfamiliar. By reaching out to these girls on their college campus, you can bring the community to them and you can bring their passion, vision and fearless faith to the community. Kristina, the coordinator for one of our local chapters that meets on a college campus shares her heart for starting a chapter on campus.
“LeadHer provides an avenue for women leaders to grow in their faith, leadership, and community. The university setting is a natural environment for bringing together our current and future women leaders. With LeadHer being available on a university campus, students, faculty, staff, and alumni can interact in a unique setting, growing as leaders and women of faith, to potentially influence both their immediate community and those beyond the campus in the future.”
