Hi Everyone, My name is Molly Weissman and I'm excited to share some information about Global Citizen Year's new initiative: Global Citizen Academy: a first-of-it’s kind leadership experience equipping diverse high school graduates worldwide with powerful and practical skills for a lifetime of social impact.
The Academy will feature:
By design, Global Citizen Academy will require a 10-15 hours per week commitment, leaving space for students to simultaneously engage in the issues and projects they're passionate about, or earn income. Whether students choose to dedicate time to working on voter registration, the climate crisis, or COVID-19 response, Global Citizen Academy will provide an empowering layer of structure and support—helping students connect with their people, their purpose, and their power to shape the future.
The inaugural semester of Global Citizen Academy will run from August 31 - December 18, 2020.
We welcome you to nominate any 2020 high school graduates around the world for whom Global Citizen Academy is a great fit. Fill out this quick form: www.globalcitizenyear.org/refer
NOTE: The nomination is completely non-binding, but once you nominate we’ll reach out and share information about the Academy to help every student figure out if it’s a good fit for them
