Our Academic Enrichment Programs Are Designed To Give Students The Tools To Inspire Positive Change In Their Local & Global Communities.
We partner with organizations, embassies, and schools to cultivate a rich and diverse offering of programs for students. Our programs include engagement with students from all around the world, encouraging our future leaders to collaboratively examine global challenges with their international counterparts. We have experience hosting an assortment of student programming, from program recruitment to arranging all programmatic and logistical aspects.
- PATHWAYS Negotiation Skills Workshop: In February 2021, with the help of PATHWAYS’ expertise, we were able to co-facilitate a series of dynamic virtual workshops for 23 high school students interested in learning how to approach personal and professional situations in diverse and creative ways. The workshop series, which took place in February 2021, involved students in a range of simulations, games and strategies to improve their negotiation skills. What made this program particularly exciting was its international component. Not only were San Diegan high school students involved (particularly students from La Jolla Country Day School, who partnered with us on this program), but the cohort also included 12 students from Sha’ar Hanegev in Israel. We were so pleased to collaborate with these two incredible institutions to engage students in a global perspective, and show them through experience how differing opinions and lived experiences can affect any negotiation process.
- Global Leadership Youth Program: The Global Leadership Youth Program launched as a fall/winter enrichment program in October 2020. In partnership with La Jolla Country Day School, GLYP included five two-week modules. At the conclusion of each module’s programming, students gained a nuanced understanding of a timely, global issue, information about career paths in the field of international affairs and diplomacy, increased cultural competency and understanding through strengthened leadership and civic engagement skills, and a Certificate of Excellence in Global Citizenship on the topic of the week.
- Global Leaders Online Program: Our flagship virtual summer program for students, GLOP is the perfect way for students to remain engaged in foreign affairs and build their college resumes during summer vacation. Our first year of the Program featured four week-long modules which explored Nuclear Nonproliferation, Resource Sustainability, Pandemic Diplomacy, and Borders & Immigration.
