The NeW Young Women’s Leadership Retreat prepares and inspires young women to be effective leaders as they face the cultural and political landscapes of their college campuses. Attendees hear from a variety of speakers and connect with NeW Alumnae, mentors, and peers. The students selected to attend the Retreat will develop skills to help them thrive academically and personally, all while having fun and building friendships with other talented and motivated women in the NeW network.
2017 Young Women's Leadership Retreat
The third annual Young Women’s Leadership Retreat was held July 13 to July 16, 2017 at Randolph-Macon College in historic Ashland, Virginia. This application-only leadership program brought together conservative, leadership-focused college women (incoming and current) from across the country to attend. Please check back later for more details about the 2018 Retreat.
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.
