Each summer, the Cesar E. Chavez Leadership Institute provides a week-long leadership-training program at the Arizona State University campus for high-school sophomores and juniors. Participants take part in leadership and college-going workshops and a service-learning project. The program covers individual futures; community issues; civic engagement; leadership development; and educational resources. The goal of the program is to help students participate fully in academic, civic, economic, and cultural life. ASU Educational Outreach & Student Services sponsor the effort for 60 students who are chosen based on demonstration of leadership in community/school involvement; academic achievement; and the quality of a personal statement.
