“Our students are tenacious, thoughtful and strong young people. They have deep-rooted beliefs and opinions about the world they live in and they are eager to enact change. In order for our scholars to be successful in the 21st century, they must be critical thinkers, community-minded, character-focused and constantly open to the process of learning. WEB capitalizes on student strengths by providing systems and structures in which leaders and participants build strong connections in both one-on-one and small group settings. Through the WEB program, students develop strong interpersonal relationships, hone their critical thinking skills and find their voice.”
