Wellesley College invites rising high-school sophomore, junior, and senior girls with a passion for leadership to join us this summer in Wellesley's Leadership Exploratory Workshops.
July 27 - August 2, 2019
August 4 - August 11, 2019
LEADERSHIP EXPLORATORY WORKSHOPS
Wellesley College is consistently recognized as a top women's college, where students become women leaders who think critically, engage globally, and are committed to values of honor and service. Wellesley's Pre-College Leadership Exploratory Workshops are committed to these values, meaning Pre-College students will be challenged to think critically and engage deeply with unique academic topics.
One Wellesley Summer offers the following Week One Leadership Workshops:
Adulting 101: Etiquette & Financial IQ
Gain social confidence and competence with foundational skills that will not only carry you through life, but also provide you with a competitive advantage as you kick start your grown-up life. This hands-on workshop includes interactive activities and role-playing to help you polish your presence and build basics in financial literacy. Lessons will cover a broad range of topics, including college & career interviewing skills, email writing, social media etiquette, table manners, budgeting basics, hand-shakes and introductions.
Leadership for Young Women: Forging Your Path
There’s no better place to discover your voice, your strengths and who you are as a leader than at Wellesley. In this workshop, we’ll begin by taking a look at successful women leaders and role models throughout history to better understand leadership and some of the barriers women have faced. Then we will explore many different types of leadership behaviors such as relationship building, teamwork, empathy, resilience, self-expression, navigating conflict, communication styles, learning from mistakes and more. During the week, you will participate in a variety of self-assessments, and fun yet thoughtful activities designed to help identify interests and strengths. You will learn a lot about yourself and your impact on those around you. You’ll leave with a visual representation of your pathway and some great insights about yourself as a present and future leader.

THE EXPLORATORY EXPERIENCE
In participating in an Exploratory Workshop, students become members of the Wellesley community. For both of our one-week programs, students reside in a historical, residential dorm, with access to Wellesley dining and amenities. Unlike many other pre-college programs, Wellesley College offers the invaluable opportunity to experience a small, all women, liberal arts environment while building leadership skills beyond the classroom. Out of all the features of Wellesley’s Exploratory Workshops, participants usually reflect on the empowerment they feel during their summers at Wellesley. One participant noted: "I feel so empowered being at a place where I am valued."
Applications for Wellesley’s Exploratory Workshops are NOW open until June 14, 2019. To learn more about Wellesley College and its Pre-College Exploratory Summer Workshops, please visit http://summer.wellesley.edu/summerprograms/exploratory
