The world needs female leaders. The Porter’s Center for Global Leadership is specifically designed to produce and support them. Our programs give girls and women the tools they need to be empowered, learn, collaborate, lead, and create innovative solutions to pressing global issues.
Porter’s LEADS is a series of programs for middle school girls in grades 5 through 8. The LEADS workshops offer unique ways to engage and introduce participants to the competencies and skills necessary to begin their journeys as leaders–locally, globally, and for a lifetime.
The Summer in Farmington programs offer girls an opportunity to live on campus learning and collaborating with their peers in an environment that supports their development as future leaders. In our inclusive and supportive environment, middle school girls are given individualized attention by world class faculty. Joining us in Farmington, Connecticut, on Miss Porter’s School’s beautiful campus, girls will be inspired to let their curiosity and confidence soar as they connect with each other while learning to lead, collaborate, and become informed, bold, resourceful, ethical global citizens.
This virtual, extracurricular program provides opportunities for high school girls to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective catalysts for change in their communities and beyond.
If you strive to create a more just and equitable future, then let us help you transform this passion into action. Students who participate walk away with a new found confidence in themselves and in their ability to spark positive change in their communities. You will become part of and continue to have access to an incredible network of peers, mentors, and expert changemakers from around the world.
