SUMMIT, NJ - In its 22nd year, the Kent Place School Girls’ Leadership Institute (GLI) will hold summer institutes for girls entering grades 4-5, 7-8 and 9. The GLI will host its 2017 Open House for prospective participants March 7, from 7 - 8 p.m. on the Kent Place School (KPS) campus, enabling parents to join their children and learn about the program's new summer offerings and to participate in free parent-daughter leadership workshops.
The summer institutes, at every level, are designed to help girls explore their leadership potential, strengthen their self-advocacy skills and turn ideas into action.
All programs include hands-on activities on KPS' 26-acre campus, guest lectures, peer mentoring and off-site field experiences intended to build skills in several essential areas: communication, social and emotional intelligence, vision and goal setting, ethical decision-making, leadership styles and cultural competence.
Graduates of the GLI programs have gone on to become student government leaders, publication editors, team captains and club presidents.
Kent Place School is located at 42 Norwood Avenue.
