NEWLT is a six-day summer residential program (May 29-June 3, 2014) that gives women from colleges and universities statewide the knowledge and skills to become effective leaders in politics, public policy and public service. Participants meet Texas women leaders representing a wide range of backgrounds, experiences and political views. Students attend workshops on public speaking, networking, diversity, leadership styles and group dynamics in order to build self-confidence and enhance their growth as potential leaders.
Each NEWLT class is comprised of college women with diverse socioeconomic, racial and ethnic experiences who share an interest in public leadership and in making a difference on their campuses and in their communities.
Note: There is no direct cost to students. Participating schools agree to pay a $500 program fee for each attending student. A limited number of scholarships is available for students who are unable to obtain funding from their schools.
