Fieldston Emerging Leaders program
Welcome to Fieldston Emerging Leaders
From the moment I visited Fieldston, I witnessed a whole new way of teaching and learning because I listened to big ideas from younger minds. Eight years ago, a group of 2nd Graders taught me about topics like water pollution and its effect on sea creatures and the concept of recycling. Every year the students became more confident in what they had to share and proud of their initiatives. With assistance from their teachers, the students made sure their young voices were heard. What if we could all be as brave as those 2nd Graders and advocate for what is right? What if we shared our ideas and worked on them fearlessly to create the change we want to see in our communities and beyond?
At Emerging Leaders, we provide a safe space to empower our scholars to use their voices to innovate, explore, and advocate for the social change they want to see in the world.
Our goal is to ignite our student's creativity and leadership skills while building an ethical community of upstanders who will be viable candidates for colleges and universities.
