|Event Start Date||Monday, August 5, 2013 – Friday, August 9, 2013|
Manchester Conference Center
The TrailBlazer2ChangeMaker program prepares high school students for personal, academic and professional success and to be the change they want to see in their world. The week-long program also teaches leadership, stellar communication skills and money management.
"Students will learn to think differently, set goals and stand out from the crowd in a way that will help them create their own version of success," said program instructor Jackie Freiberg, a USD graduate and the best-selling author and leadership expert who also teaches in USD's School of Leadership and Education Sciences.
"These skills are not being taught in high schools and are a great complement to the academic skills they learn in the classroom," added instructor Lisa Gates, chair of the department of Communication at San Diego Christian College who also teaches at San Diego State University.
Offered at USD by the Division of Professional and Continuing Education, the Trailblazer 2 Changemaker program also exposes high school students to the college experience. Current USD faculty and staff will receive a 50 percent discount of the registration fee.
