Student leaders are the backbone of the LandSea program. The leaders, who are all current students, serve as the front line of the program by facilitating the participants’ experience, offering support, teaching skills, and role modeling. They encourage the new students to challenge themselves to attempt things they do not think they can do, reflect on their passage from high school to college, open themselves to others, build effective relationships, and take responsibility for themselves.
