2017 Young Women's Leadership Retreat
The third annual Young Women’s Leadership Retreat will be held from July 13 to July 16, 2017 at Randolph-Macon College in historic Ashland, Virginia, only 30 minutes away from Richmond International Airport. This application-only leadership program will bring together conservative, leadership-focused college women (incoming and current) from across the country to attend.

For more information about the Retreat, please contact Kendall Wolfson, Director of Operations, at [email protected].
The Young Women’s Leadership Retreat offers two tracks: one for rising college freshmen and another for upperclassmen (sophomores through seniors). Both tracks include tailored workshops to meet the distinct challenges each group experiences on campus. The two tracks merge at points during the Retreat for panel discussions, leadership training, and team building events.
Sessions will address issues like equal pay, health care, and conservative activism. Additionally, students will participate in public speaking and debate workshops, and learn to develop their networking and interviewing skills.
