      About the Program

      program overview Overview

      The Global Citizenship Challenge is a one-week intensive experience in team-building and problem-solving for motivated students ready to take on real-world problems. During the program, students will be immersed in an interactive learning experience to explore, develop, and build global citizenship. By bringing together talented high school students from all around the world, the GCP will expose you to new ways of thinking and understanding. What’s special about our program is that you don’t stop there: together with a team of students, you will create a potential solution to the Global Challenge, your final project, using that thinking and understanding to make a difference in the world.
