The new class of Leadership Prince William gathered early Thursday morning for their Opening Retreat Kickoff.  Past alumni and supporters gathered to wish the seventh class of Leadership Prince William well and send them off to their first session.

The two day kick off session included a combination of discussions and activities designed to motivate and stimulate participants. The retreat was overnight and is a practice in team building, as well as allowing the participants to experience first- hand, the benefits of the program.
