UWC Short Courses

31 August 2024

3 June - 21 June 2024

Global Leadership Forum (GLF) is UWC-USA’s virtual summer program for students 13–16 years old who want to learn more about UWC and become the changemakers the world needs.

Learn to build the skills of peacemaking, conflict resolution, goal setting, and collaboration. Make friends with students from all over the world and explore how to become a local leader dedicated to making the world more just, sustainable, and peaceful.

The theme of GLF – Summer 2024 is CHANGE!

Participants routinely point to the following ways that they grew as a result of their GLF experience:

  • Increased confidence
  • Greater self-awareness
  • More resilience
  • Increased empathy
  • New global perspectives
  • More friends

Our staff are more than just camp counsellors, facilitators, or leaders, they are:

  • Experienced
  • Educated
  • Trained
  • Passionate

Our staff mentor our students to make sure they have a positive and empowering learning experience. They serve as inspiring role models to students who need courageous global citizens and people in their lives to emulate and support them going forward.
