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 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, Tianjin for students aged from 11 (Year 7) to 17 (Year 12). We invite the alumni of the programme who took part last year to also apply to attend at a discounted programme fee.
- Friday 15th December – Sunday 17th December (non-residential)
Our Future Foundations British Facilitators will be visiting Tianjin to deliver this programme.
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).
