“Unite dreamers and doers and leaders who support them”

The Clifton Foundation sponsors an annual strengths lab event that brings together like-minded individuals for a developmental experience.

Strengths Labs was introduced as an option for high school and college students in 2015. The first cohort from George Washington University designed a high school model for entrepreneurs. The following years focused on students from public, private and charter high schools, and early college students. Students were selected from hundreds of applicants to practice creating businesses. Students have participated in Strengths Labs from the U.S., India, Tanzania, China, and Mexico.
