The Global Leadership Program fosters the development of compassionate, aware global citizens while building skills in leadership, communication, and civic action.
The program offers a way to recognize Upper School students who embrace opportunities to learn more about world issues and events, make connections across borders, dedicate themselves to service, and have made a strong commitment to preparing themselves to live in a globalized world.
Students explore a global theme each year, educate each other and the MVCDS community on the theme, and then take action locally and globally.
Students may enroll at any time during their freshman or sophomore year; however, it is strongly suggested that students enroll as early as possible to allow for a greater amount of time and more flexibility in meeting the requirements of the program. Interested juniors should consult with the GLP co-directors to plan a viable path toward certification (if certification is desired).
