In EnACT, students will draw from the core concepts and curriculum in LEAD and practically apply them to social issues found within Illinois through a legislative process. Students will decide from four different areas of focus: Environment, Society, Health, or Education. In each of these larger areas there will be multiple subtopics (5-8) tackling more specific problems within their direction of research and study. Throughout EnACT, students will gain perspective and understanding of the issues that afflict contemporary American society as well as propose solutions to improve the overall quality of life amongst their communities. To do this, they will utilize leadership theories and ideas covered in the core LEAD curriculum, assisting them in their tasks of convincing others of their ideas as well as creating effective and ethical solutions to the issues they have researched.
