Global Social Leaders (GSL) Catalyst is a unique 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.
The ultimate goals of the GSL 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.
