With students at the center of every program, Gunston actively seeks to train young people to be good citizens and to be leaders in their society. Leadership is a skill that can be taught, and students at Gunston have the opportunity to work closely with adult mentors who will help them develop and direct personally meaningful activities both in and outside their school. The network of young leaders blossoms in a nourishing environment that encourages students to fully engage in their passions, and classmates recognize and celebrate the contributions of each of their peers. Below are several of the opportunities available at Gunston, giving everyone a chance for visibility and support as they try on leadership roles in our community:
