ON-Lion Letter

The Network of enlightened Women (NeW) is accepting applications for its 2015 Young Women's Leadership Retreat from July 30 through August 2 at Sweet Briar College's campus and conference center, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia.  The leadership program prepares top entering college freshmen women for the cultural and political climate on campus and gives them the skills they need to become campus leaders.

Retreat participants will hear from Taking Sex Differences Seriously author Steven Rhoades and Townhall.com news editor and Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich.  They will also be able to network with their peers and NeW mentors and will discuss topics such as civic engagement, the campus hook-up culture, American feminism, and more -- and learn practical skills, such as how to write a letter to the editor to further dialogue on campus.

Participants will leave better prepared to thrive inside and outside the classroom, through a combination of academic instruction, leadership training, mentoring, and team-building activities -- all while having fun and developing friendships in the NeW network.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, through April 30, and are available online.  Priority will be given to applications submitted by March 3.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports NeW.
