​What is Global Leadership?​​

Global Leadership is both a methodology and a course designed to empower and engage high school students by developing leadership skills through service learning.

  • Teachers and students become agents of change.
  • True democracy in decision-making is practiced through weekly class meetings and group grading systems.
  • Students draw from their work to teach an adopted classroom of elementary students through the "adopt-a-school" component.
  • Solution-driven Facing the Future curriculum challenges students to think critically about relevant global issues.

Why is Global Leadership Essential Now?

  • Global Leadership directly addresses the 21st century skills that students must develop in order to participate in a global society: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
  • In a Global Leadership classroom, students learn about their own role in our global society and, through collaborative exploration, they devise solutions and take action on issues they deem relevant.
  • In Global Leadership students enter as learners and emerge as communicators, problem solvers, and collaborators.

What's in it for me?

  • This Summer Institute for Teachers will provide teachers of all content areas with a highly effective approach to creating a climate of mutual respect and shared ownership in which student leaders become engaged global leaders both in and out of the classroom.
  • The workshop will be interactive and transformational. There will be time allocated for reflection and group collaboration; you will leave the week with lesson plans, sample course policies, and a access to a wealth of ready-to-use curriculum.
