We prioritise the health and safety of all our GLF staff and participants. In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and in order to take responsible measures to comply with recommendations from leading health authorities, the UWC-USA Strategic Leadership Team has decided to cancel the 2020 GLF summer program. Currently, given the uncertainty, we do not yet know what the 2021 summer will look like. We encourage you to monitor our website www.uwc-usa.org/GLF for updates and new information.

Director of Summer Youth Programmes, UWC-USA
Global Leadership Forum (GLF) is a summer youth leadership program that takes place on the UWC-USA campus in Montezuma, New Mexico. Our vision is to empower youth through experiential education to foster social justice at the local and global levels. Over the 23-day program, participants will internalize the UWC mission and core values by communicating effectively, growing as a person and citizen of the world, and by developing close relationships with peers from around the world.
