Get Involved, Learn Leadership Skills and Make a Little Money All at the Same Time

There's more to college than attending classes, studying and taking exams. Much of what you learn in college comes from experiences outside of the classroom. There's something going on every day - lectures, club meetings, student government, art exhibits, concerts, intramural sports, and more. A great way to use your voice and be involved on campus is through the Community Leadership, Education, & Outreach (CLEO) Program.

Green River Community College's leadership program, CLEO, provides students the opportunity to learn valuable skills with hands-on experience in managing a program while at the same time earning money. Each position assumes responsibility for planning, organizing, budgeting, and implementing activities to meet the varied needs of Green River students, faculty, staff, and surrounding communities. During the summer participants spend a portion of their time in workshops and training sessions that supplement their on-the-job training. Training also focuses on the communications skills necessary for the CLEO members to become student ambassadors for the college. The skills and experience gained in this program have helped many CLEO members move on to highly successful careers.

This highly respected program has established Green River as a model for student development programs throughout the USA, and you can be a part of it. For more information or an application, e-mail the International Student Activities Manager: mkoch@greenriver.edu
