EmpowerMEnt Summit 2016: Initiate the Future

Today, The House Student Leadership Center announced that its 2016 EmpowerMEnt Student Leadership Spring Summit will be held at Georgetown University on February 18, 2016.  

The Summit will coach 200 middle and high school students selected from Washington, DC area public schools on the fundamentals of improved teamwork and a greater sense of significance needed for leadership with the right mindset.  One of an ongoing series, The EmpowerMEnt Summit is the commitment of The House Student Leadership Center to build and connect existing leadership concepts of the Center's model.  These include how leaders can bridge any gap and connect people, whether the divide between their group is race, religion, gender, or age, for the intellectual and social challenges of their times.  Students in Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business will merge with students in attendance for expanding young people's excitement for, awareness of and access to the many expressive and educational opportunities offered by Georgetown University.

The Summit is the commitment of Helen McCormick, President and Founder of The House, Inc. and its partners to merge leading high school athletes and high performing high school scholars with a large demographic of students that are underserved, living in poverty and attending low performing schools to reinforce important principles as life-long learners.

Joining the Spring 2016 EmpowerMEnt Student Leadership Summit is Keynote Speaker Jon Gordon, Wall Street Journal Best-selling author, and one of the most sought after speakers in the world today.  His best-selling books and talks have inspired readers and audiences, and his principles have been put to the test by numerous NFL, NBA, and college coaches and teams. He and his training/consulting company are passionate about developing positive leaders, organizations, and teams.  His clients include The Miami Heat, LA Clippers, Fortune 500 companies; and his books are assigned as summer reading by professional and collegiate sport teams.
