Online learning, real-world community


During times of crisis, we are especially reminded of the importance of a strong community that helps us not only believe in, but dream of a better tomorrow. LEDA’s powerful community gives us the strength to overcome even the most daunting challenges. We are incredibly proud of and grateful for the strength of our LEDA Family: our Scholars, Career Fellows, alumni, partners, staff, and Board.

We would like to update you on some notable shifts that we are making in LEDA’s programming. For Summer 2020, LEDA will be pivoting all student programming from in-person to virtual, namely, our Aspects of Leadership Summer Institute and our Career Institute. We will be drawing on 16 years of experience successfully providing our community with key essential virtual services.

LEDA will welcome its newest community members, Cohort 16 Scholars, to its virtual seven-week Aspects of Leadership Summer Institute from June 20 to August 7, 2020.

LEDA is thrilled to provide rising high school seniors with the transformative experience of the Summer Institute, including our signature Aspects of Leadership course, intensive writing instruction, standardized test preparation, and individualized college advising.

LEDA’s innovative, five-day Career Institute will be held virtually from August 8 to August 12, 2020.

We are excited to welcome our employer partners to this virtual experience as we provide rising college sophomores with interactive professional development webinars and individualized career advising.

Our focus on building a robust community remains at the forefront of these virtual models, and we are committed to delivering innovative programming that successfully empowers our community of exceptional young leaders and grows our community. As we continue to navigate this new normal, we want to thank you again for being a part of the LEDA family. We invite you to connect with us virtually on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
