Our Purpose

The Student Leadership Institute (SLI) at El Camino College is a year long training program that provides students with an opportunity to tap into their strengths, skills and authentic leadership abilities through identity exploration and collaborative action projects.

   • Fall 2022: Students will participate in a 2-Day Training Session on leadership, values, communication, strengths and teamwork.
   • Spring 2023: Students will put their leadership skills into action by participating in Action Team projects that make a positive impact on our campus and in our communities.
   • At the end of the program, each SLI Action Team will share their experiences and projects at our culminating Pinning Ceremony and Celebratory Dinner.
