What makes MLW different from other leadership program? YOU, the delegate.

At Maryland Leadership Workshops, there are no dry and boring lectures where presenters talk at participants. Instead, delegates are immersed in dynamic, interactive workshops where you and your team work together to practice skills and come up with ideas that are meaningful and relevant to YOU.

Our passionate and invested staff doesn’t tell you what effective leadership looks like; they ask “What does effective leadership look like to YOU?”

Maryland Leadership Workshops runs three residential week-long core programs in the summer and numerous community outreach programs throughout the year. 

Workshop topics include: 

  • Group Dynamics
  • Team Building
  • Self Awareness
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Interpersonal Communication
  • Diversity
  • Ethical Decision-Making
  • Leadership Styles
  • Time/Stress Management
  • Public Speaking
  • Motivation
  • Project Management
  • Public Relations
  • Delegation


The experience doesn’t end at the end of the week. Many delegates stay in touch through the year and MLW holds an annual half day reunion in January for students who attended core residential programs during the previous summer.

But the people who have attended the program say it best! Be sure to check out the program testimonials
