Want to ‘Be The Change You Wish to See in the World’?

Communications – February 24, 2011

This summer, African Leadership Academy will officially launch the Global Scholars Program (GSP), a 3-week, intensive leadership experience designed to bring together the top secondary school students from across the world.  

The GSP seeks to prepare students with the mindset and the tools necessary to, as Mahatma Gandhi so presciently said, “be the change you wish to see in the world.” 

This July, selected students will discover how to transform passion and vision into deliberate action; explore leadership in practice at some of Africa’s most impactful social ventures; and lead an initiative aimed to help a community in need.
