Refine your skills to become a leader in your community and beyond.
International Leadership for Social Impact The International Leadership for Social Impact program teaches the crucial skills for future careers in global leadership — and the keys to becoming an engaged global citizen. Each week, students focus on one of the four United Nations pillars. Each pillar prompts real-life simulations, decadent international cuisine, lectures by international leaders and trips to destinations including Washington, D.C. and the United Nations in New York City. During simulations, you will be assigned a role as a world leader and thrown into a real-world situation or crisis. From public speaking and debate to critical thinking and confidence, you will grow as a future leader. You and your team will design your own non-government organization (NGO) that raises awareness for an “invisible” issue — that is, an issue that lies under the radar but stands to make a huge impact when solved. Compete against classmates in front of a panel of professional judges for a real donation you can put toward your cause! Collectively, these experiences give you a firsthand, unprecedented glimpse into life as a global leader. Deadline: Rolling
