Global Social Leaders (GSL) Catalyst is a unique 3-day intensive leadership course, designed to develop your leadership skills and your understanding of global issues enabling you to plan a project and become a leader in your life and society. GSL is a transformational leadership experience developed by Future Foundations and the Wellington Leadership Institute that brings together young people from across the world who are driven to make social change on a global scale. In December 2017 we are running a GSL Catalyst programme to be hosted at Wellington College International, Shanghai for students aged from 12 (Year 8) to 15 (Year 10).
- Saturday 16th December – International Arrivals
- Sunday 17th and Monday 18th December – Cultural Excursion
- Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st December – GSL Catalyst Course
- Friday 22nd December – International Departures
The ultimate goals of the programme are to:
- Develop leadership skills
- Nurture confidence
- Empower the participants to go on to lead successful projects at their own school
The programme will aim to develop each participant’s personal understanding of different leadership styles, and how to show leadership for oneself, in school, and in the community.
Participants will develop their understanding of the global challenges we face and how, through partnership and innovation, we can solve them. They will be taken through real life cases to demonstrate good project management and how to create their own impactful projects to take on after the programme ends.
After the programme, the participants will be challenged to start their own projects which will make tangible changes within their school and the community (local, national or global).
Alongside the student programme, teachers from each school will attend the sessions/activities so that they can support the participants on their return to school with their projects.
In Partnership with the Wellington Leadership Institute
Wellington Leadership Institute aims to develop leaders with the passion, values and skills to serve and make a positive difference to the lives of others.
