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.
A simple video about a few things special to Ecuador, Ibarra, or my experience that I hope remember long after my year here.
About Layla Solatan
Layla is passionate about human rights, animal rights, and education. She spent her high school career as a student in her school’s Social Justice Pathway, through which she spent her senior year designing an experiment and presented a talk about her research on ways to alleviate stereotype threat in educational settings, hosted a social justice-themed symposium for her school district, and worked with her school's non-profit to support low-income students on their path to college. The summer before her senior year, she traveled to the Dominican Republic through Global Glimpse to teach English, which inspired her to spend a year in Ecuador through Global Citizen Year.
