Job Description File
All Executive Committee members will help to plan and implement the USC Early Outreach (REACH) Leadership Conference while promoting the values and benefits of increased access to, and participation in post-secondary education.
The REACH Conference is a USC outreach initiative that takes place in May for ‘at-risk’, socio- economically disadvantaged youth in the city of London. The Conference recognizes that many students decide their future educational pathway at an early age, and hopes to provide youth with information and tools to help them make well-informed decisions. The Executive Committee works with representatives from the Thames Valley District School Board, the City of London and Middlesex County to target schools that have been deemed to have a higher population of students that may believe post-secondary education is out of their reach. The Executive team works from October 2017 until May 2018 to plan, organize and implement a 3-day conference that takes place during either first or 2nd weekend of May. Members of the Executive Committee, along with a team consisting of approximately 50- 60 Western students called Leadership Developers, act as leaders and mentors for the grade 7 and 8 Conference delegates. The Conference provides an understanding and appreciation of the different post-secondary opportunities that can be pursued, as well as guidance and motivation from both leaders and invited speakers. In addition, the Leadership Developers provide the delegates with a positive perception about challenging and empowering themselves, and reaching beyond their comfort zone.
