The LinkedIn Learning Champion Program now expands over the course of a full academic term to provide ample time for students to define initiatives and execute projects while managing their academic workload. The program will run continuously and all final reflections and projects will need to be completed by April 30th, 2020

To get started, it's three easy steps:

Join the Group

Start building your network on the official LinkedIn group for Student Champions! Share ideas, your projects, and help crowd-source answers to all of your questions here. 

Complete Pre-Training Courses

You will be required to complete two LinkedIn Learning courses before you attend your live training session. Once you complete these LiL courses, add the Certificates and Skills to your LinkedIn Profile and add your skills. 

Attend Live Training

To complete your orientation, you must attend one of the Live Training sessions, both virtual and in-person sessions at our local LinkedIn offices are available.


The projects you complete during the program become the foundation of skills you learn, experiences you collect, and keystones of your portfolio. These projects and initiatives give you the opportunity to be as innovative and creative as you dream of OR you can lean on the recommendations from project categories already outlined.

Project categories include:
- Social Media/Content Curation
- Writing and Publishing
- Presenting & Public Speaking
- Creative Design
- Hosting Events (Individual & Team-Based)
- Capstone

All project submissions must be posted on LinkedIn, either in the Champion group or publicly on your profile. Please use the hashtag #LiLChampions2020 for all of your submissions. Keep track of your points using the Point Tracker for the final submission.

To successfully complete the program, Champions must earn 80 points total. Each project type has a different point value that will help earn the total points required. *For capstone projects, please work with your program mentors to determine project value.

Final Reflection

To successfully complete the program you must complete and submit a final reflection to help articulate the initiatives you worked on and the skills you learned. The reflection should include:

(1) complete summary of projects in Point Tracker;
(2) a 300-word or 3-minute video summary of your experience to answer the following questions:

- The benefits and drawbacks of the program
- Skills that you developed through the program
- Feedback about the program (areas for improvement)
