Individual Level

This level of the SLA Program is based on the Individual Domain of the Social Change Model, in which we examine our values and skills and determine whether they align with the values of those around us. These workshops and action steps help us to better understand ourselves and the people we interact with regularly, and address the fundamental skills for successful leadership.
