Introduction

A transformational leadership journey that starts with a 3 or 5 day programme at your school led by expert coaches from the the UK.

GSL Catalyst programme is designed to develop leadership skills, understanding of global issues enabling young people to plan a project and become leaders in their life and society. Participants will receive powerful leadership training, inspiring talks and the chance to make deep connections with their peers. Each participant will receive a certificate and support with establishing a project after the programme.

Programmes can be delivered at schools or colleges across the world and are the perfect stepping stone for participants who wish to begin their leadership journey.

Examples of GSL Catalyst Programmes we delivered around the world

Over three amazing weeks, the GSL Catalyst @Home programme connected young people across the UK over global and local issues, shared passions and visions for a better world and how to boost personal wellbeing.

"Sometimes it's hard to describe the things that change you"

One of my young Global Social Leaders said, as his final reflections of the GSL programme, ‘Sometimes it’s hard to describe the things that change you’. He was right.

GSL Goes to China!

I had the privilege of being part of a 5 day Global Social Leaders Catalyst delivered by Future Foundations from 12-16th August at Chaoyang Kaiwen Academy, Beijing. I was a Coach alongside Charlotte Spooner, where we each had 20 pupils, supported by our Course Director James Canvin. After settling up our classrooms, resources, planning sessions and fuelled with Kung Pao Chicken, we were raring to go and excited for the week ahead!

Shrewsbury Global Social Leaders

As the 2018 UK winners of the Global Goals competition with their outstanding project to help local refugees settle into the Shrewsbury community, this 3 Day GSL Catalyst was the prize for the school; to motivate and inspire the next wave of Global Social Leaders. As a school, Shrewsbury has a strong culture of GSL and a weekly-meeting GSL Society, so we were hugely excited to be delivering a Catalyst in this hotbed of action.
