Student programming is back! This Summer we are slated to run what is quickly becoming one of our flagship offerings, the Global Leadership Youth Summer Program (GLYP). Open to students entering grades 8 -12, this program gives students valuable skills including negotiation, global awareness, and an understanding of diplomatic processes. This program has been made possible thanks to the academic partnership of La Jolla Country Day School and the generous support of Nordson Corporation Foundation and Five Together Foundation.
The Summer 2021 iteration of GLYP will include all of the most-loved components of our previous student programs including diplomacy simulations, guest speakers, deep-dive projects, and ample opportunities to connect with like-minded students. However, there are several pieces to GLYP that may look different this time around, including participation from students outside of the U.S., and optional in-person site visits and workshops.
GLYP Summer ’21 will take place over four weeks in July, with brand-new modules carefully curated with the help of our student community. These include:
· June 28 – July 2: Global Pride: Advocating for LGBTQ+ Rights
· July 5 – 9: “Of the People”?: Democracy in Danger
· July 19 – 23: There Is No Planet B: Advocating for Climate Action
·Dates TBD: Outside the Box: Design Thinking for Social Global Innovation
Registration costs $200 per module, or $775 for all four modules. Sponsorships are available for students in need of financial assistance to participate in GLYP. Sessions will run Monday through Friday, from 9:00 – 11:45am. Interested in participating?! Please fill out this form, and we’ll let you know once registration opens, and keep you updated with additional details!
Please share this opportunity amongst your community – all students are welcome!
