Step 4: Seek leadership and gain experience

Once you have some experience under your belt, we encourage you to seek leadership positions within your current or new organizations. This will give you the ability to develop an entirely new set of skills and to hone the skills you already have in an environment where you are held accountable and where you have greater opportunities to be mentored.

Talk members or administrators or your organizations to learn about different opportunities that may arise. Speak with you other involved friends to find out if opportunities exist where they devote their time, and always share the ones you are aware of.

There are a lot of resources on campus to help you develop your leadership skills individually and separately from your organizations. Consider checking them out if you have an interest in more effectively working with people and if you're at all passionate about service or inspiring change.
