A 12-week leadership experience, delivered virtually, that equips students worldwide with the skills and network for a lifetime of social impact. At 4 hours per week, the Academy empowers students to define their purpose and drive meaningful change in their communities and the world.
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.
