Something that we see time and time again from candidates with kids and clubs...having a title of President, Treasurer, etc of a club is one thing. Title does not always equate to leading. You can lead a community service event without being in charge of a club at school. USNA cares about the action more than the tile. When I ask kids on MOC boards what they did as the club (insert any title here) we often hear the bullet points of I did x, y, and z. Every kid who ever held that title did that. That isn't necessarily leading that is doing the job description. As a Plebe you won't have a title, but you will be called upon to lead. You will have a title as a Ensign or 2ndLt, but it doesn't mean you are leading. We want to see kids with initiative. I have seen some amazing leadership from kids that had nothing to do with a club. They organized community service events at animal shelters, group homes, senior facilities, shelters, churches, parks, etc. They were able to coordinate all the activities with shelter leadership, park service, etc. They also coordinate all the labor, donation of money, services, goods from other places to make the event happen. They organized shoe, coat, food drives in communities. They have lead Habitat for Humanity efforts. I have seen alot of athletes use their teams, school facilities, etc for leading camps, clinics, etc with community youth. Its a great way to combine a passion of sports, teaching future kids about that sport and volunteering. You don't have to be a team Captain to approach the team Captains or Coach to put an idea together and execute it. That is the kind of stuff that a SA is looking for.There are tons of opportunities to lead that provide amazing examples for future essays, interview talking points and lessons learned on leading.
