VCU’s Leadership Workshop

VCU’s Leadership Workshop is a leadership and college preparation series designed to share information with Richmond public high school students about developing leadership skills and the college selection process. The program will allow students to engage with VCU staff and students to learn what it takes to be a leader and a scholar. At the conclusion of the workshop, students will be awarded a VCU Leadership Workshop Certificate.
