VCU’s Leadership Workshop

Virginia Commonwealth University’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.

This session will offer helpful information for parents as they help their students navigate the college application process, financial aid and on-campus student resources. The event will also feature interactive discussions for students and parents and dinner in the dining hall.
