Changing the world sometimes changes you.
The Global Leadership Forum (GLF) helps participants develop skills to become change agents in an ever-shrinking world. You will live and learn with peers who are committed to positive change. Together, you will tackle challenges and negotiate difference—all in the rugged mountains of northern New Mexico.
GLF welcomes participants entering any year of high school who understand their futures depend on an increasingly global society. By combining hands-on learning with leadership training and practical project training, participants learn the skills they need to become culturally competent leaders and community builders. Participants:
engage with confidence in critical conversations that transform conflict
learn about the power of communication, and how to communicate effectively using a variety of media, including social media
hone intercultural skills through immersion and home-stays with families in Santa Fe, New Mexico
conceive, plan, and prepare for a project they will execute upon returning to their home community
GLF graduates come home as engaged, empowered citizens of the world, equipped with skills for success in university and beyond. All GLFers receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program.
