The George Washington Leadership Institute:
As an education-oriented nonprofit, Mount Vernon seeks to preserve and share George Washington’s legacy with each visitor to our historic site. The Washington Leadership Institute focuses on educating leaders today using the historic example of George Washington, bringing the past to the present to develop leaders at all levels. Using Washington’s principles of leadership, the Institute can provide brief context and a sense of place to each event at Mount Vernon, to full leadership development training programs with a focus on strategy, team-building, and more.
To meet the needs of each event, Mount Vernon is facilitating different types of events and programs as we progress through a phased re-opening plan:
Virtual Programs: The Washington Leadership Institute has developed online leadership sessions for completely virtual programs.
Hybrid Programs: Events held at the Library have the capacity to broadcast/teleconference to include virtual participants into onsite programs.
Onsite Programs: Events held onsite at the Library and Mount Vernon Estate are subject to different limitations and capacities to ensure the safety of visitors and event participants. Precautions will affect space capacities to ensure safe social distancing.
