Summer Leadership 2013

You Do Make a Difference  

Fontbonne University Summer Leadership Institute

For: Juniors and Seniors in High School

June 17-28, 2013

Why is leadership important?
What do you respect in the leaders around you?

You can explore the answers to these questions and much more when you join fellow high school students this summer for a truly worthwhile experience that will help position you to make a difference in this world.

As social issues continue to challenge our society, both locally and globally, we need young adults to step up, say something, take charge and, yes, lead.

What is the Fontbonne University Summer Leadership Institute?

Fontbonne University’s summer institute encourages exploration, participation and discussion regarding leadership and how it can lead to social change. You’ll learn about your own diverse leadership abilities and style, group development, conflict management, effective communication and project management. And, you can earn THREE COLLEGE CREDITS!
