The mission of the World Leadership School is to unite young people around the world’s most pressing problems and empower them to become leaders. We use volunteering as a platform for teaching global issues and leadership.
World Leadership School partners with schools to offer 1-4 week service learning trips to Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Belize, Peru and the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Each program is custom-fit to the needs of each school but includes the following key elements:
On a World Leadership School trip, students focus on a single global issue like climate change or poverty. Students advance from understanding to action by working alongside inspiring local leaders who are doing something about these problems. Along the way, students will look inside themselves and begin a personal leadership journey.
