Maryland Leadership

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Maryland Leadership Workshops (MLW), a division of Leadership Maryland, announces that registration for its Summer 2022 programs is now open for middle and high school students. The organization also announced that after two years of offering alternative virtual and regional programming due to COVID-19, MLW is returning to its traditional in-person, residential format at Washington College in Chestertown, Md. 

This year, Maryland Leadership Workshops is offering two peer-led, week-long residential programs that empower and inspire middle and high school students to succeed and be more engaged in their schools and communities:

  • Middle School Experience in Leadership (July 17-23, 2022): Open to students entering grades 6-8 in Fall 2022, this program helps students begin to develop their individual leadership skills and learn how to identify and take advantage of opportunities for leadership in their schools and communities.
  • Senior High Workshop (July 24-30, 2022): Open to students entering grades 9-12 in Fall 2022, this program helps teens develop the leadership skills they need to succeed in diverse environments and be agents of positive change in society. Through innovative leadership activities and engaging group challenges, students interact with both peers and staff to develop their own unique leadership styles. Students build strengths and skills they can apply throughout their lives, including in their higher education, future careers, at home, and in their communities. 

Both programs bring together a diverse group of students from across the state of Maryland and the country to engage in a supportive and fun environment. MLW students, known as delegates, participate in a mix of workshops, group projects, committees, and discussions designed to foster increased independence, self-esteem, and confidence. Delegates also enjoy games, variety shows, dances, and opportunities to lead activities for their peers.

A limited number of spaces are available in MLW’s Summer 2022 programs. To register, please visit www.mlw.org. Registration will close on May 31, 2022, or sooner if all spaces are filled. A deposit of $25 is due upon registration, and monthly tuition payments will be accepted through June 2022. Scholarships are available.
