School-based Leadership Workshops: Empowering Student Leaders in Virginia Beach
School-Based Leadership Workshops

Cultivating Tomorrow's Leaders

Weekend leadership workshops provide a transformative experience for Virginia Beach high school students. Over three days and two nights, participants engage in activities and discussions that build essential leadership skills such as communication, teamwork, problem-solving, and conflict resolution. These workshops empower students to make a positive impact in their schools and communities.

Dedicated Staff, Dedicated Time

The success of these workshops relies heavily on dedicated student leaders who volunteer as staff. These are individuals who have personally experienced the power of leadership workshops and now dedicate their time to ensuring the same for others. Staffs are often supported by alumni and teachers, creating a collaborative and enriching environment.

The Financial Balancing Act

The total cost of a school-based leadership workshop can range from $12,000 to $30,000, depending on participation. This covers transportation, workbooks, materials, meals, and lodging. Student leaders actively fundraise throughout the year, but sometimes a personal registration fee of up to $110 per delegate is necessary.

Committed to fostering leadership in all students, the Virginia Beach Student Leadership Foundation champions school-based leadership workshops. These powerful programs equip young people with the skills and confidence to thrive as future leaders.

Empowering, Not Burdening.

The VBSLF recognizes the financial strain these workshops can place on student leaders and their communities. Our mission is to ease this burden, allowing staff to focus their energy on creating impactful and engaging leadership experiences.

The VBSLF would like to help ease this financial burden so school-workshop staffs can spend less time planning car washes, and more time planning unforgettable leadership opportunities for their students.
