At the end of Angela Kohtala’s leadership skills course, her high school students have to plan and carry out a community service project. Maybe it’s fixing up their school courtyard, or tutoring younger students in an afterschool program.
Afterwards, they create a PowerPoint with pictures of the project. This isn’t just a nice way to develop presentation skills — it’s mandatory to prove that they really weeded that garden or sat with those kids in the first place.
You see, Kohtala’s students are spread across the state of Florida, while she herself lives in Maine.
