Taking on a leadership is no easy task. It requires a strong knowledge, skill, and humility. Leaders are those that we look to for direction, inspiration, advice, and to keep us going when things get tough. If you’ve taken on a leadership role, whether it was for your school’s sport team, club, outside organization, or volunteer group, you may be qualified to earn free money for college.
