Introduction

This research explored community-based, experiential learning in the holistic development of leadership identity in college students. The cohort of students in the 2014-2015 Community Involvement Program participated in 10 or more hours of community-based learning, piloting a collaborative experience with a local library reading program designed to promote literacy, focusing on ethnic minority boys through a superhero theme. Leadership identity as suggested through the CIP students' guided reflections were analyzed into stages of a developmental leadership identity model to contribute to understanding changeoriented leadership identity development.
