YOUth Have a Voice Participants: Three Credit UMaine Early College Course in Leadership is Available

You May Benefit from Enrolling in LDR 100: Foundations of Leadership

By Andrew Hudacs, Assistant Extension Professor, Statewide 4-H Teen Leadership and Workforce Development

This online asynchronous three-credit University of Maine course is a study of leadership as a personal and social phenomenon with a focus on the development of practical leadership skills and behaviors. The LDR 100 course is usually available in the fall, spring, and summer terms.

Activities and experiences in the 4-H YOUth Have a Voice program can provide opportunities to complete certain assignments for the LDR 100 course. The LDR 100 course is an additional option for participants that will require time and effort beyond the projects for the 4-H program.

Registration for the LDR 100 course is separate from enrolling in YOUth Have a Voice. Information about the registration process can be found on UMaine’s Early College How to Apply page.

Most Maine high school students can take early college courses tuition-free. Please visit UMaine’s Early College Financials for more information.
