The Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute offers yearlong and summer programs to adults and youth in grades 8-12.

“Now more than ever we believe it’s time to offer young women the tools they need to become the next generation of leaders we see in the world,” said Antoinette Klatzky, Executive Director, Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute.

The Eileen Fisher Leadership Institute brings young people together to explore their passions, learn from pioneers of industry, the arts and beyond, and discover their unique leadership style. Now in its eighth year, and having supported over 4,000 participants in their own leadership development, EFLI continues to expand its award-winning programs to reach many more people of all ages.

Throughout 2018, EFLI will offer programs to adults and young people interested in the unique, community-based approach to leadership training based on the EILEEN FISHER Inc. practices of creativity, confidence, connection and community. In addition to six weeks of youth leadership summer programs, EFLI will offer two programs for adults. Train-the Trainer (March 2-4) is a 3-day workshop for adult coaches, trainers, facilitators, and educators interested in learning how to practice EFLI’s transformative education methods, hosted at the EILEEN FISHER Learning Lab in Irvington. The second program is EFLI NYC (April 1-7), a residential program for young adults ages 18-20 interested in an immersive educational experience in New York City that will focus on the importance of sustainable fashion and the inner workings of the EILEEN FISHER Inc. business model. These programs allow participants from across the country to explore creativity, confidence, connection and community and discover their own leadership styles.

All of EFLI’s summer programs for young women and young men will be held at the EILEEN FISHER Learning Lab in Irvington, NY. In 2018, the non-residential summer program offerings for young women in grades 9-12 include two sessions of Activating Leadership (July 16-20 and August 6-10) and Awakening Leadership, a program open to young women entering grade 9 (August 13-17). Activating Leadership National (July 30 – August 3) is a residential program for young women in grades 10-12.

EFLI’s summer program offerings for young men include Leading from Within, open to young men in grades 9-11 (July 9-July 13) and Leading with Impact, a co-ed program for young women and young men in grades 9-11 (July 23-July 27). The LiFe Fellowship will continue to be open to young women and young men who are recent high school graduates or early stage college students. Fellows will receive a stipend for their work with EFLI from June 27-August 22.
