An intensive, 12-week leadership experience that equips students worldwide with powerful skills for a lifetime of social impact. Designed as a 5-7 hour per week commitment, the Academy adds an enriching layer of purpose to high school, college, travel, or work.
A deep, 8-month immersion where students live alongside the global majority in Brazil, Ecuador or India and develop the insights, skills, and network to become the leaders our world needs. Fellows build language fluency, develop resilience, and become part of a community a world away from home.
Alexandra (Alex) is passionate about the world around her. She is an avid feminist and was the co-head of her school’s Women’s Rights Club for two years. She also cares deeply about ensuring people are informed on current events and therefore created a newsletter at her school focused on her home state of New York. Her goals for the year are to create a meaningful bond with her host family, learn from the children in her apprenticeship, and try lots of new food! One of her favorite quotes is “Wisdom begins in wonder” by Socrates. Alex is participating in Global Citizen Year through our partnership with the Tufts 1+4 program.
