INVST Community Leadership Program

Make a difference! Combine academics with activism.
Apply for the INVST Community Leadership Program Class of 2009-2011.

Consistent with our vision for a just and sustainable world, INVST Community Studies programs develop engaged citizens and leaders who work for the benefit of humanity and the environment. In order to fulfill our mission, we offer: A comprehensive two-year Community Leadership Program (CLP); Community Studies Electives; and A Youth Council for Public Policy.

The INVST CLP is designed as a two-year commitment combining meaningful community service with theoretical inquiry and leadership skills training, challenging students with an interdisciplinary exploration of issues relevant to social and environmental change.

HOW IS THE PROGRAM STRUCTURED? Over a period of two years, INVST Community Leadership Program students engage in rigorous course work, comprehensive skills training, and community service. The service-learning activities include two summer service experiences, four theory courses and four skills classes, and numerous community-building activities. During the first year, students participate in a community service internship, and during the second year, students design, implement and evaluate a community-based project. In addition, students help create the policies and procedures of our organization.

WHO MAY APPLY? The INVST Community Leadership Program is open to all majors. Students may be freshmen, sophomores, or juniors, as long as they plan to be at CU-Boulder for two consecutive years. For those who plan to finish earning their undergraduate degrees from CU before completing their commitment to the INVST CLP, the courses described above may be taken through Continuing Education.

INVST Community Leadership Program Commitment to Multicultural Pluralism: We actively seek and support the participation of individuals and communities that reflect diversity of ability status, age, color, ethnicity, gender, gender variance, life experience, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and veteran status.
