Samples & Resources

The following downloads may be useful in your Lead2Change initiative. These resources are borrowed from the Cadet Staff Duty Analysis program. Do you have a resource that should be the example for others? Send it to us. In the future, we want to replace the scoring rubics found in the "Aids for Adults" column with something like a descriptive cheat sheet.
