Global Leadership

For High School Students

Training Today’s Young Adults to Become Tomorrow’s Global Leaders

The Global Leadership Program for high school students, grades 9-11, is designed to help young adults become better students, college applicants, and global citizens. Students build relationships and learn vital skills such as team communication, cultural awareness, creativity, community service, leadership, goal setting and decision making in a group setting with teens from multiple high schools and differing backgrounds.

Participants put their newly acquired skills to use working collaboratively on a service project of their choice, with proceeds going to helps marginalized children in one of our overseas programs. At the completion of the program, students and their families celebrate their success at a graduation ceremony, knowing that they have made a contribution to the world.

Class size is limited, so register today by filling out the application below and submitting at least two letters of reference.
