Description: Through this week-long summer program, part of the Barnard Pre-College Program, young women study the complex relationship between gender and leadership at Barnard College in New York City. Students develop action-oriented leadership plans and learn from college staff, alumnae, and professional facilitators in a series of workshops, discussions, and seminars. Writing and reading assignments along with site visits also play a key role. Working in small groups, they design and execute a project to improve the pre-college community and then share what they have learned at a student-run conference.
