The Emerging Leaders Program provide's college undergraduates leadership and management training, specially tailored for young adults and inspired by the experiences of George Washington.

Located roughly 15 miles outside of Washington D.C. and available via public transportation, the Emerging Leaders Program gives students doing a semester in the District a chance to get out of the city for a bit and have a unique educational experience.

Programs usually last for half a day and make particular use of Mount Vernon's newly designed Be Washington experience as well as unique presentations by the Leadership Institute's faculty.
