Teens to Take the Lead at Mount Holyoke Conference

Forty high school juniors from across the country will converge on campus for an intensive four-day teen leadership conference that gives girls tools to turn ideas for social change into action. Each participant will be paired with a Mount Holyoke student mentor in the fourth annual Take the Lead conference October 2-5. The program of lectures, workshops, brainstorming, and nurturing helps each girl develop a detailed plan to effect positive change in her school, community, or the world at large. "We wanted to create a program in which, at an early age, girls realize they can make their voices count in the world," said program chair Patricia VandenBerg, the College's executive director of communications and strategic initiatives. more>
