Global Citizen Year Launches Accessible New Virtual Gap Year Alternative

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:

  • Diverse international cohort: A selective admissions process will identify determined and hopeful young people who represent society's diversity. Selection criteria screen for a commitment to self-reflection, learning, and collaboration, not test scores or grades.
  • Sliding scale tuition: A unique, sliding scale fee structure invites families to pay what they can, ensuring that the experience is accessible to exceptional young people from all socio-economic backgrounds.
  • Courses in the skills that matter most: Faculty-led sessions addressing topics from effective communication and systems thinking, to mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and ethical decision-making, are designed to help students learn about themselves, the world around them, and how to have a meaningful impact.
  • Inspiration from today's most impactful leaders and innovators: Weekly sessions taught by today's most innovative leaders across business, philanthropy, government, and social change will provide insight and perspective on the challenges and opportunities of our global crisis.
  • Personalized mentorship: Individualized coaching will complement the core coursework, unlocking students' potential as purposeful leaders.

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
