Workshops and Conferences
Increasingly, companies are seeking employees who work effectively in teams and who are strong leaders. If you want to standout in a tight labor pool then take advantage of the many leadership development opportunities offered through the Center for Leadership & Services.
The First Fridays Leadership Institute is a regular series of leadership development workshops, offered the first Friday of each month. These hands-on, interactive sessions are designed to build practical leadership skills, including public speaking, interpersonal communication, conflict resolution, and more. Students that attend 5 or more sessions throughout the year receive a certificate of completion.
Held every year at a local retreat center, the Winter Leadership Retreat brings together students from across campus to explore leadership in depth and to build a community of student leaders.
Student of Color Conference
Highline students have regular opportunities to participate in local leadership conferences. For example, every September the Center for Leadership & Services takes students to Wenatchee, Washington for the Community and Technical Colleges Leadership and Activities Institute.
Another excellent leadership opportunity is the Student of Color Conference (SOCC), held each spring.
