This chapter discusses leadership training in Schechter Regional High School. In 2003, the school opened with the specific aims of developing individual accomplishment, Jewish commitment, and community leadership. Co-heads of school were appointed, one from Jewish education, the other from an independent, non-sectarian school. Both were particularly interested in developing leaders with strong collaborative skills. The leadership team, known as the LT, consisting of the two co-heads, posited that leadership opportunities would come to Schechter Regional graduates even if the school did nothing to promote this; society looks towards well-educated adults to fill its many leadership needs. The real challenge was to develop effective and ethical leaders capable of meeting these needs. Thus Schechter Regional became a leadership lab with Town Meeting at the centre.
