Project Description

The 2012 Kingsborough ASAP Leadership Team organized two events.  The first was a night of fashion, music, and poetry that took place in Kingsborough Community College's Main Cafeteria, and was open to all KCC students. A second event took place on May 2, 2012 from 4-8 pm, when volunteers gave back to the community by volunteering at a local soup kitchen.


Project Date

April 26, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.









What did you learn from the process of planning and executing your team project?

Jonathan: I learned how to organize tasks.

Lana: I learned that it takes a lot of patience, especially since it’s not just me working on a project alone.



What was your favorite part of working on your team project?

 Melissa: Seeing how well my group come together and make a great experience happen.

Jonathan: My favorite part was being able to see our project develop and become complete.



  Do you think your team reached its goals in planning and executing your project? 

Lana: I think my team did reach the goals that we planned on for our project but it started off a little rocky at first because we were getting used to each other and also we had to work around everybody's schedules and make sure that we got everything done on time.

 Melissa: Honestly, we did reach our potential goal in the long run despite all the hurdles that we did have to get over.





What’s been your favorite thing about being in the ASAP Leadership Program?

Melissa: I love that we were able to help one another with not only the team project but with our school work also.

Jonathan: My favorite thing about being in the Leadership Program was the incredibly fun CAT workshops.



Were there any parts of your project that didn’t go as planned?  If so, how did you deal with the unexpected or difficult moments, and did you learn anything from them?

Jonathan, Melissa, and Lana: One part that did not go as planned was the soup kitchen.  We had to reschedule three times because of church issues.




What impact has the ASAP Leadership Program had on you as a student and as a person?

Melissa: It has taught me that I should be able to depend on others, rather than just depend on myself all the time. Also that I am a great person who loves to help the world.

Jonathan: It pushed me to do more in school and life. I feel that I can change the world.



How will you apply the lessons or skills you’ve learned through participating in this experience—in the classroom, in your career, and/or in your life in general?

Jonathan: I will listen more, take opinions, facts and support to help others and myself accomplish goals.

Lana: I will apply these lessons throughout life because everywhere you go, you have to be willing to work together in a team, to be dependable and have people to depend on; it’s something that will be hard at first but soon enough you will get the hang of it.
