Global Citizens are developed by exposing students to humanitarian issues which inspires them to facilitate change within their local communities.
Over the past three years, the Global Leadership Academy has prepared Arizona State University students to be globally minded leaders and citizens for the 21st century. Through cross-cultural communication, collaboration, empathy, and self-exploration, students learn to thrive in a diverse environment where values, ideas, opportunities and people continually evolve with today's interconnected global community.
This semester, Global Leadership Academy participants will have the opportunity to learn about humanitarian issues affecting different communities through immersive volunteer experiences. To reflect on these volunteer experiences, participants will meet four times throughout the Fall 2019 Semester. At each group meeting, students will have the opportunity to learn and reflect from community leaders to help advance their local communities and professional careers.
Students will volunteer for 20 hours with non-profit organizations in teams (ideally 3-6 individuals)
Each team will record videos and take photos throughout their volunteer experience
Students will submit videos/photos to program staff to help prepare 2-minute videos that will be presented at the end of the semester luncheon
