Take the Lead

Thank you for your interest in Take the Lead. 

After ten wonderful years we are closing the program in order to shift the resources to other College initiatives, all of which empower women.

If you want to be inspired by young women making positive change in the world, we encourage you to check out the action projects that high school participants completed as a result of Take the Lead. 

Their work is a constant reminder to all of us who were fortunate enough to be engaged with the program, that women—even very young women—can and should make a difference in the world!

With gratitude to all who contributed time and talents to the program over the years,

Patricia VandenBerg, Ph.D., Founding Director
Take the Lead
