Abstract:   (1976 Views)
Student leadership development is often associated with participation in activities and the extent of student engagement. This study identifies the relationship between extracurricular activities and students’ leadership development outcomes, focusing on the group values component of the Social Change Model (SCM) of leadership development. Data were collected from college students in the United States of America and analyzed using a quantitative methodology. In addition, the correlation and contribution to college students’ community leadership were analyzed using the Socially Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS-R2). Results revealed that students with experiences participating in extracurricular organizations/clubs or leadership training while in college exhibited higher group values of leadership development than students without these experiences. Specifically, collaboration and common purpose showed significant differences between groups (p < .05). Student type, self-perception of leadership skills, and highest participation level were significant predictors for group value of leadership development outcomes. This study highlights the need for higher education institutions to provide students with opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities involving groups to help develop and empower students’ leadership that advances positive social change.
