During the academic year, students are invited to opt-in to a series of monthly online workshops. Through these workshops, students will build skills and deepen their understanding of leadership, civic engagement, and social justice. The workshops are flexible so students may sign up for a single workshop that interests them or engage in the entire series. Participation in six or more workshops will award students with a Hiatt Leadership Institute Certificate of completion.

Workshop dates below are tentative for 2022-23. Students will receive the most up-to-date info via their Beaver email and at weekly MS meetings. Parents/caregivers will be notified via the monthly newsletters and MS Community Meeting weekly email updates. The website will be updated to reflect changes as they come.
