This course is by invitation only; it is designed for students who have been specifically chosen to serve in a leadership position to the entire student body. Students who are willing to do what it takes to be elected or appointed to a school-wide leadership position deserve additional leadership mentoring, and, when they receive it, they provide more positive energy and effective leadership to their peers.
The purposes of this course are to bring together student body leaders from across Williamsburg Learning schools for deep and practical leadership mentoring and to facilitate a space in which faculty advisors from each WL school can guide their own student body leaders towards school-specific goals and plan school-specific activities.
