Level Up With the Leadership Institute: August 7-13, 2022

We are so thrilled to announce that the 2022 Leadership Institute is in-person in Honduras. We are excited and optimistic that this will be a turning point to continue to return to in-person conferences and leadership events.

At the Leadership Institute (LI) you’ll have a chance to meet other Global Brigades student volunteers from around the world, network with Global Brigades staff, and gain a more behind-the-scenes look at our programs.

There are limited spots available and applications are subject to Global Brigades acceptance, so we encourage you to apply today!

The following are highly encouraged to apply:

  • Undergraduate/Graduate students hoping to start a Global Brigades Chapter for their campus/community
  • Current or aspiring Global Brigades Campus Chairpersons
  • Current or aspiring Global Brigades Chapter Leaders

The Holistic Model, Hands-On

Unlike a typical Brigade or Telebrigade, the Leadership Institute gives you the unique opportunity to dive into all elements of the holistic model in just one week.

Attendees will participate in a schedule of community visits, presentations from Global Brigades staff, and even a visit to the brand-new medical clinic in Tegucigalpa. This combination will give you a hands-on understanding of our holistic model to empower you as a GB Student Leader, as well as strengthen your critical thinking skills surrounding international development.

Take a preview of last year’s schedule for an idea of what’s to come:

First Look at the Tegucigalpa Urban Clinic

Located in the Honduran capital, the Tegucigalpa Urban clinic opened in October 2020 and has been the hub for our Medical Telebrigades. Now, we are thrilled to offer the opportunity for students to see the urban clinic in action, in person, this summer. Although considered a “clinic,” the medical team here provides a wide range of specialized services, including gynecology, dermatology, internal medicine, pediatrics, physicians, optometry, dentistry, and pharmacy.


Leadership Institute Donation Goal

Just like a Brigade or Telebrigade, our Leadership Insitute has a donation goal that you can fundraise for on your MyBrigades page. Also just like a Brigade or Telebrigade, donation goals encompass staffing, content, volunteer ground transportation, food, lodging, and emergency insurance, all while supporting our year-round efforts in our partner communities.

Your flight cost can also be added to your donation goal should you choose to book airfare through the Global Brigades’ travel team.

2022 7-Day Leadership Institute (In-Person): $590 (USD)*

*One month prior, there will also be the addition of a COVID donation goal to account for appropriate PPE and testing given the current requirements.
