The next generation of leaders is already here, among the young men and women of the next generation. Our mission is to aid these young leaders in their efforts to learn, to take the lead — and to give back and strengthen their communities, through public service and civic engagement. To do so, our Leadership Programs introduce next generation students to experienced leaders, and connect aspiring young leaders with opportunities to learn from experienced mentors — who offer their insights on leadership through our Master Class program (see our Learning from Leaders series, featured below), and who work with the Initiative to mentor students who are interested in pursuing public service, willing to speak out, and ready to get involved in civic issues and campaigns, and give back to their communities.
FEATURED PROGRAM FOR STUDENTS:
Learning from Leaders: Lessons in Leadership
What does it take to run the CIA? Or even run for President?
Well, our Master Class leaders have been there, and done that.
Whether it’s former White House advisor Fran Fragos Townsend (above at left), former Sen. Olympia Snowe (next at left), former Director of Central Intelligence George Tenet (third at left), or former Gov. Michael Dukakis (at top and at left) — or any of the other leaders listed below — our Master Class leaders bring their fascinating experiences and valuable insights to our Classes on Leadership.
Over the years our students have had the great opportunity to learn from a broad spectrum of leaders, whose deep experience has come from serving their communities and representing their nation, in an array of different capacities in Washington and overseas, while wrestling with some of the great challenges that have faced our nation, including:
former Sen. Paul Sarbanes
former Assistant Secretary of State Barbara Pope
Deputy US Trade Representative Demetrios Marantis
Brookings Institution Managing Director William Antholis
former Assistant Secretary of Treasury Eugene Rossides
Athens 2004 organizer Gianna Angelopoulos
