To our young leaders,
Your growth has been tremendous! We are so proud of you. Thank you for being part of the first annual IWE Study Leadership Camp 2014.
From June 25 to June 30, a selective group of high school student participated in six half days of intensive leadership training. We had a smattering line-up of guest lectures, workshop activities, project work, and reflections for our students, who took home changed perspectives, a bucketful of advice, and a more positive self-image. Below, we share a few testimonials from our outstanding student leaders. See more photos in the gallery.
