Global Leadership Institute «

 

During the Global Brigades Leadership Institute, student leaders will get a behind-the-scenes look at Global Brigades' Holistic Model. Under the mentorship of Global Brigades staff, participants will learn first-hand about each of the programs currently implemented in the host country, how the programs support one another, and ultimately how the programs contribute to the sustainable transition plan for each community. Upon completion, leaders will be equipped with the tools and knowledge necessary to be effective advocates for Global Brigades' student-led movement on-campus.
