The leadership program – one of the few that exists at the high school level – focuses on identifying young people with leadership potential and developing their attitudes, skills, values, knowledge and leadership styles during the course of secondary school. Participants in the program are winnowed down during their junior and senior high school years, with just one percent ultimately being selected as tGELF Leadership Scholars. The Scholars receive tuition to any college or university in the world, and are free to pursue careers in any field they choose.
Students work on team skills, thinking skills and writing, speaking and listening skills; engage in role-play and exercises that involve moral decision making; learn to identify their own leadership strengths and weaknesses; and discuss the qualities of national and global leaders. They also participate in conflict management workshops, an adventure camp and organic farming, and spend time with street children….There are two teacher training workshops per year, run by thefaculty from teachers College, Columbia.
