Training Today’s Young Adults to Become Tomorrow’s Global Leaders

Global Leadership is Going Virtual!
Summer 2020


The Global Leadership Program, for students from grades 9 through 11, is designed to help young adults become better students, college applicants, and global citizens. Participants put their newly acquired skills to use working collaboratively on a service project of their choice, with proceeds donated toward Pearl S. Buck International’s mission and work. At the completion of the program, students and their families celebrate their success at a graduation ceremony, knowing that they have made a contribution to the world. 

What you can expect: The same great opportunity, only virtually!
  • Engagement in discussions, simulations, and community service
  • Relationship and team building with teens from multiple high schools and differing backgrounds
  • Honing communication, leadership, organization, and decision-making skills
  • Building cultural and diversity awareness
  • Opportunities to collaborate, work creatively, and give back to Pearl S. Buck International’s mission and work
What we will expect from you: The same commitment & excitement!
  • Access to a computer with camera, audio, and strong internet connection (if you do not have these capabilities, we can still work with you! Please let us know if you will require technology)
  • Involvement and active participation in online discussions, sharing, and coursework
  • Commitment to online morning meetings
  • Dedication to small group flex time in afternoons (you can expect roughly 4-6 hours per week)
  • All students are to adhere to the same standards of behavior online as they would face-to-face.  Everything the students post in the chat window can be viewed by our instructors. We will be asking students to sign an online waiver

It was a wonderful way to build self-confidence and skill as a leader, both of which are integral skills for future members of the workforce. I gained a lot from this program, and would love to see others gain from it as well.
