The Impact LLC iLeaders Program is designed to foster intentional involvement in an effort to encourage residents who receive the Impact LLC Scholarship to fully embrace their time in the LLC and at Baylor. The program offers incentives and rewards to students who are active participants in events hosted by the Impact LLC, events at Baylor, and events in the Waco community.
Who qualifies for this program?
This program is currently limited to students who will be receiving a scholarship from the Impact LLC. Because the LLC is investing in these students’ education, we want students to have a meaningful and invigorating university experience, and one where they are contributing to their LLC, Baylor, and Waco communities.
What is the advantage to this program?
Studies have shown that students who are more involved in extracurricular activities have a better university experience. Through participation in this program, iLeaders will have the opportunity to meet and build relationships with fellow students, as well as faculty, staff, and community members. These relationships help foster growth and a community-oriented mindset. By providing students with a framework for engagement in and contribution to their community, this program is designed to make students feel known and engaged in their place of living.
How does it work?
iLeaders receive points by attending or participating in Impact LLC-sponsored events and recording their attendance online. The attendance form will have a brief response section for students to indicate what they enjoyed about or learned from the event. The online form tracks student points and students can get rewards by reaching certain point levels, with a minimum requirement of 50 points per semester. At least one of the events attended must be participation in an Impact LLC service event (see items marked SVC on LLC calendar). Students will log their points HERE.
What can students earn points for?
iLeaders can earn points for participating in Impact LLC-sponsored activities as well as Baylor and Waco activities that help students meet the goals of embracing growth, enriching community, and engaging challenges. We want students to be creative in their approach to these activities.
iLeaders may count a maximum of six 5 Point Activities towards the required 50 points each semester, however, they may count more 5 Point Activities once the requirement has been met. Students must also earn points from each category throughout the semester. Points will only be available for Impact LLC events unless otherwise stated by iLLC staff or leadership.
What are the rewards?
All students who meet the requirements of this program will be invited to an end of semester party specifically for iLeaders. At the party, awards will be given based on the level of student participation: Green (51-100 points), Gold (101-150 points), Sic ‘em (151-200 points), Super Sic ‘em (200+ points). There will also be special awards for students who have gone above and beyond as iAmbassadors or iTeam members.
