Allendale Columbia School’s Center for Global Engagement, in partnership with Rochester Global Connections
, offers the Summer Global Leadership Program designed for young people in Rochester interested in learning about and engaging in global issues.
Students participate in a 2-week, all-day program where they work, eat, and play with highly-selected youth who are part of the Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP)
. Together the students receive training and engage in hands-on projects that explore leadership skills, civic education, diversity and inclusion, human rights, and peace building. Through cross-cultural collaboration, this program provides all participants with a life-changing experience to help make an impact both locally and globally.
