  • Established in 1994, the Social Change Model (SCM) of Leadership Development approaches leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-based process that results in positive social change.  The Model was built upon the following assumptions:

    Leadership is socially responsible, it impacts change on behalf of others.

    • Leadership is collaborative.
    • Leadership is a process, not a position.
    • Leadership is inclusive and accessible to all people.
    • Leadership is values-based.
    • Community involvement/service is a powerful vehicle for leadership

    The SCM views leadership as a purposeful, collaborative, values-driven process, instead of a title or position.

    Leaders commit to improving the groups or communities of which they are part. In this approach to leadership, a “leader” is anyone who wants to work with others to make a difference.

    This collaborative process means that groups must have trust and requires that group members act in ways that are consistent with their own beliefs and values as well as the group’s goals.

    The team that developed the model concluded that eight values are necessary in order to have trust, common goals and true collaboration.
