The Global Leadership Youth Program is a unique opportunity for students from across the globe to learn about international affairs and diplomacy while building their conflict-resolution and negotiation skills. With a unique itinerary of guest speakers, diplomacy simulations, group projects and cultural enrichment activities, this program is ideal for students looking to increase their cultural understanding and global acumen while building their resumes and connections with other students.
