MLW’s programs transform middle school and high school students from every Maryland region into catalysts for positive change in their schools and communities.  Students engage in reflective, interactive, creative and fun activities to expand their leadership repertoire.  Students emerge from MLW’s programs confident, inspired, motivated and empowered with the skills necessary to realize their educational and human potential.

MLW believes that every problem, issue, and challenge faced by society can be addressed through leadership.  Youth are society’s greatest resource.  Through leadership MLW empowers youth to exercise leadership today and to become our leaders of tomorrow.  In proud partnership with the Maryland State Department of Education, the Maryland Association of Student Councils Leadership Maryland, and Leadership Montgomery, MLW is a catalyst for bringing together and strengthening schools and communities throughout Maryland.
