Hampton Middle School Partnership

George M. Hampton Middle School and George Mason University Partnership

George M. Hampton Middle School is a Title 1 school situated in Prince William County. Throughout the year, the LEAD Office coordinates various efforts for community engagement at Hampton Middle School including leadership development workshops, a teen night, and a large-scale leadership conference. The George M. Hampton Middle School Leadership Program recruits, trains, and encourages college students to serve as workshop facilitators and mentors to the students in order to inspire leadership development, social responsibility, and personal growth.

The LEAD Office along with several other student organizations (Mason DREAMers, Mason F1rst Gen, Leadership and Community Engagement LLC, and the L-TEAM) and university departments (Admissions, Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Education, and Social Action and Integrative Learning) partner together to bring leadership workshops to the students at Hampton Middle School throughout the academic year during their Health and Physical Education classes.  We also host a full-day leadership conference completely run by Mason students that is held at Hampton Middle School for the kids to participate in.  For more about the workshops and conference, see below.

Mason students will engage with students at Hampton Middle School on a Saturday in April 13, 2019 from 10:00am-4:00pm, in a full day of building leadership skills that will benefit them now and in the future. The Incredible Leadership Conference will focus on leadership skill development through large group and small workshop formats. Students enhance the leadership skills they already have while gaining new skills that will benefit both now and in the future.  We are currently looking for Mason Student Volunteers and Facilitators for this year’s conference.  If you are interested in volunteering at the conference, please contact Lisa Snyder at lsnyder2@gmu.edu

Hampton Middle School Leadership Workshops

The Hampton Middle School leadership workshops are led by George Mason students during their Health and Physical Education classes. The purpose of these workshops is to meet the students where they are and engage them in activities that relate to their growth and development as leaders. Some of the competencies that these workshops tend to focus on are communication, teamwork, conflict resolution, strength building, and problem solving. Workshops are on various Fridays from 12pm-4pm throughout the semester. We rely on the continued commitment of our volunteers to sustain this initiative and are always looking for new volunteers! No previous experience required, we will ensure that you have the tools and training needed to facilitate the workshops.  If you are interested in learning more about these workshops and serving as one of our volunteer facilitators, please contact Lisa Snyder at lsnyder2@gmu.edu.
