GLOBAL CITIZENS IN ACTION
ONLINE LEADERSHIP CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AGES 14-18
The Global Citizens in Action Online Leadership Certificate Program is based on Global Citizen, LLC's evidence-based Global Citizenry Education for Young People framework and curriculum. The program engages diverse young people in learning cohorts to raise their global awareness and engagement, increase their capacity to interact and collaborate more effectively with people from different cultures, identities, and countries (intercultural competence), and strengthen their commitment to advance equity, diversity, inclusion, and environmental justice for a better world.
Our inaugural cohort meets from Monday, July 7th through Thursday, July 30th, 2020. Students in each cohort will meet in live virtual sessions on Mondays and Thursdays from 7-8:15am EDT for four weeks and complete assignments independently in preparation for each live session.
Throughout the program, students are challenged to consider and make commitments as to how they will apply their learning for broader social impact. Program activities will average 7-8 hours each week. Participants will compile their work into a portfolio of products that they can feature in future leadership and academic programs and college applications. Students who complete all sessions and assignments earn a leadership certificate.
The program culminates with a student-organized, virtual graduation and showcase event for their friends, family members, teachers, and mentors to share what they learned and engage more people in global citizenship. Students who complete the program and earn a certificate will become program alum, after which they can remain engaged with their and other cohorts through an online community.
Registration for our July cohort has closed.
