Join LDP

LDP is a semester-long program where you can apply to be a Team Member in either the Fall or Spring semester. Unlike other Experiential Learning programs sponsored through Heavener, LDP hosts weekly meetings to engage members in activities that educate them in the Social Change Model of Leadership Development which are facilitated by a 3 or 4-person leadership team. Additionally, the entire LDP cohort will come together 4 times during the semester for Big Meetings. These meetings are a chance for Team Members to network with other members of their LDP cohort, outside of their team, and engage in activities related to the overarching values associated with leadership development through the Social Change Model. In addition to the activities that occur in weekly team meetings, members also complete a community service project with a local non-profit in the Gainesville community, implementing what they learned throughout the semester to execute the service project.
