Global Young Leaders
Leadership That Goes Beyond National Borders
From the chaotic bustle of Times Square, to the serene vistas of China's UNESCO-recognized picturesque West Lake, to the imperial streets of Vienna, Austria, the young leaders attending the Global Young Leaders Conference discover international trade, culture, and diplomacy by meeting and interacting with international business leaders and policy makers where they live and work. In Washington, D.C. and New York City, in the Chinese cities of Shanghai, Beijing and Hangzhou, or in the European capitals of Vienna, Austria, Budapest, Hungary and Prague Czech Republic, beneath the towering skyscrapers of America's largest city, experiencing the business, political and cultural capitals of China or traveling between three of Europe’s capital cities, high school students with an interest in international affairs have an extraordinary opportunity to attain new perspective in the global community.
- In mock global summits, young leaders negotiate international treaties and explore the issues facing people around the world.
- GYLC students discover leadership firsthand as they meet dignitaries, business leaders, and peers their own age, in some of the world's most important cities.
- Program scholars witness with their own eyes how government works by meeting and interacting with elected officials.
GYLC is the ideal experience for exceptional young people with dreams of working in an international community. The GYLC adventure is designed to prepare scholars for a new era in world politics, trade and cultural cross-pollination, and to help them understand the leadership role they can play on the global stage.
Space in this program is limited and will be filled in the order in which students enroll. Use the appropriate links to choose your preferred session date and enroll now, or for more detailed program information, visit our dedicated website at www.cylc.org/gylc/ today.
"GYLC opened our daughter's eyes, mind and heart to a global community of high school scholars. Our daughter came back with knowledge of countries, continents, and people who she had never even heard of before. She reported working hard to catch-up to her international counter parts who were much more globally knowledgeable, but she was supported by her peers and the GYLC program made the learning fun."
