The Student Leadership Program funds a CCC chapter with The National Society of Leadership and Success. Students meeting certain criteria are invited to join the Society. To join, students pay a one-time $85 membership fee which provides lifetime membership status. The Society is the nation's largest leadership honor society in the United States. Members are engaged in a step-by-step leadership program
that helps students achieve personal growth, career success, and empowers them to have a positive impact on their communities.
Students must complete the steps of the program to become an inducted member of the Society. This includes attending an Orientation, a 3-hour Leadership Training Day, 3 Success Networking Team Meetings and 3 National Broadcasts featuring leading figures delivering success-related messages to members. Samples of previous speakers include: Rudy Giuliani, Former Mayor of NYC; Jim Cramer, CNBC Host of "Mad Money"; Common, Recording Artist; and Hilary Duff, Recording Artist/Author.
As Society members, students have access to many membership benefits including, but not limited to: job bank, nationwide network, scholarships, awards, leadership training certificate, resume enhancement, and success coaches.
The chapter dues and activities provided on campus for CCC student members of the Society are funded by Student Association.
