Participants will take part in a variety of activities, including a challenging ropes course, ethics workshops and relationship building with other young leaders. Community service and close interaction with high school and women community leaders are other important aspects of the two-week program.
The Girls' Leadership Institute at Kent Place is part of the school's ongoing commitment to being a community resource on women's issues and education.   Limited need-based scholarships are available.  For more information please contact GLI directors Holly Doyle or Erin Hennessy via e-mail at, or call (908) 273-0900, ext. 303.
