Learning New Skills

If you want to know who your future society leaders will be look no further than The Pan-American Curso de Liderazgo (leadership course). 

In the January work sessions, Curso participants spent three days neck deep in interactive work sessions including ethics and professionalism, advocacy, team building, media relations, effective meetings and presentations.

Besides in depth sessions, participants had the opportunity to discuss and get feedback on the project they are working on to benefit their society and their community.

Course participants and AAO LDP (leadership development program) participants took advantage of the time outside sessions to network informally and see a little bit of San Francisco.


Together All Weekend

When the sessions are over Curso and LDP participants spend time doing activities together. From the yearly bike ride over the Golden Gate Bridge and a walking tour of San Francisco to dinners with faculty, time together allows for networking and builds lifelong friendships.
