You Be the Judge Good impressions, greetings and handshakes can make or break an introduction in just seconds. This interactive and observational breakout session will teach students that their attitude, dress and body language “speak” volumes.
STAND OUT: Leadership
How to be an Effective Leader Students will become aware of the diversity, concerns and values of individuals in their school and the power they have as individuals to create positive (or negative) attitudes within a group through his/her conduct formally and informally.
T.E.A.M. Time Students will experience positive and negative interpersonal and leadership skills, and discover how they affect group morale and performance with particular emphasis on teamwork.
START NOW: Civic Engagement
Students will work in groups to develop a countywide community service initiative around a topic they feel is important today in Union County. The service initiative that receives the most votes at UC STEP and via the online poll will become the countywide project undertaken by participating Union County high schools. The school that shows the most involvement, enthusiasm and creativity for the project is eligible to win the $1,000 START NOW Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders.
