Burke Centre Classes
Due to the global pandemic, many of the Conservancy's regular classes were put on hold for over a year. The Virginia Governor's office eased COVID-19 restrictions regarding gatherings and use of community centers at the end of May 2021. We are slowly rebuilding our wonderful class offerings and look forward to returning to our full schedule.
Our future entrepreneurs program will focus on cultivating our student’s leadership skills, emotional
intelligence, help them to discover their personal purpose, spark innovative ideas, and teach them team
building and problem-solving strategies. Each student will have the opportunity to build their personal
startup company and present it to their parents at the end of the program!
