Wheaton College held its fourth forum for high school student leaders on Friday, November 9, 2018. The theme for the most recent, day-long forum was “Empowering Change: Shaping our World Together”.
As our world faces complex problems, its future leaders will need to be able to think creatively to come up with innovative solutions to provide lasting social change. Your current high school students will see extraordinary challenges throughout their lives, and it is critical to help them to develop the skills and tools to create innovative solutions that will have a lasting impact.
Through panels led by Wheaton students and faculty, high school student leaders had an opportunity to address some of the critical social topics of the day. They engaged with like-minded peers, were challenged to think globally, and left with the knowledge and tools necessary to provide a positive social impact.
The next WheaLead forum will take place in the Spring 2020, exact date to be determined. The forum is open to student participants from select high schools throughout the Massachusetts, Maine and Rhode Island. Participation is limited and students must be nominated by their school principals or counselors to attend.
