PEER LEADERSHIP AND SERVICE PROGRAM
Do you want to be a leader, but feel like you lack the confidence to step out of your comfort zone to lead? Do you feel like you missed your opportunity to get involved, but you still want to embark on your leadership journey here at A&M?
The Peer Leadership and Service Program will serve as the bridge to get you there! The Peer Leadership and Service Program (PLSP) is a program dedicated to providing the fundamental training and skills needed to become an effective leader within the Texas A&M community. In order to do this, we hold weekly trainings, facilitate various presentations, and support the services and resources offered by the Leadership & Service Center. Our program offers peer mentorship, intentional leadership development, and opportunities to network and connect with student leaders across campus. You’ll get the opportunities to better understand your leadership style, practice the tangible skills of leadership and service, and explore leadership and service opportunities. We emphasize growth in confidence, public speaking, self-awareness, and leading teams. As a member of our program, you will work hand in hand with the Leadership and Service Center to promote leadership and service opportunities, facilitate presentations and workshops, and become more integrated in the hub of leadership at Texas A&M.
