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.
Here are some pictures summarizing nature explorations, the Carnaval in Laguna, trips to Curitiba and the waterfalls in Iguaçu.
About Lynn Drescher
Lynn is passionate about the environment, dancing, and baking. She is involved in her schoolÂ´s event organization team and urban water protection. Her goals for the year are to immerse in the local community and to learn Portuguese. Lynn hopes to find time to reflect, but also to understand what she could imagine herself doing after her Global Citizen Year. She would like to learn outside, things a classroom cannot teach her, and as much as possible about Brazils beautiful setting and environmental threats.
