At Webb, our vision of leadership is based on writer Robert K. Greenleaf's model of "servant leadership": leaders who are driven not by a desire for power and authority, but by a profound interest in serving the people around them. Servant leadership emphasizes characteristics like empathy, forward thinking, and the ability to bridge different perspectives and points of view. Again, at Webb, leadership is not about power and authority, but about service to the people around you.
Service opportunities aren't limited to the local area. Each year, Webb's Service Council organizes international service trips over spring and summer breaks, involving everything from building schools to assisting with tsunami relief. Past destinations have included Peru, Fiji, Ecuador, Romania, Argentina, Australia, Costa Rica, Thailand and Africa.
