There is no time to waste in tackling the greatest challenges facing us today, from intolerance to climate change.
Youth are the bold and visionary leaders we need to transform our world. No other generation has the fresh perspective and untapped creativity of youth.
Every moment is an opportunity to expand our understanding, work with others to craft solutions, and engage our world. Everything matters.
Bold and visionary leaders are needed now more than ever. Youth are leading the charge around climate change, student debt relief, racial justice, and so much more. Whether you’re active in your school or a global campaign, your voice and energy are urgently needed.
Join us to turn up your skills to organize, plan and lead change. We’re offering sessions for both high school and college students this August, in time to ramp up for the 2021-22 academic year.
This fast-paced intensive experience focuses on these essential skill sets for young leaders:
All participants will be invited to monthly coaching calls throughout the 2021-22 academic year, too, so we can continue to support each other as we’re doing the work. Join us!
Jump start your network by learning alongside and from youth leaders getting involved on issues like climate change and immigration.
Global Scholar builds skills that cannot be gained elsewhere, which you can immediately apply to your work and life. Click to see our curriculum.
We’re offering sessions for both high school (ages 13-17) and college (ages 18-22) students. Session 1 (August 9-11) is for rising 9th-12 graders and Session 2 (August 13-15) is for rising college freshmen to seniors. Applicants should be, or aspire to be, leaders in their schools or communities, in any way. This could mean serving in a formal role, and/or just being someone who is passionate about engaging their peers around social issues. You do not need a minimum number of years or depth of experience; you’ll benefit from this experience whether you’re a newer or more seasoned leader. The biggest quality we look for in applicants is curiosity and dedication to impacting their world.
This three-day program will take place online. Days will involve interactive workshops, followed by small group conversations and “challenges” (applied assignments). We’ll have social events, games, and some pre-recorded content too. We’re typically online for 4 to 5 hours per day, with lots of breaks. Participants will be broken into small cohorts they’ll work with throughout the program, and stay in close touch with over the coming year via occasional check-ins. AMP Global Youth has been designing and delivering exciting online workshops for many years, and we’re incredibly good at what we do. You’re sure to connect, learn, and have lots of fun.

We know this has been an incredibly difficult year for many families financially. As a non-profit organization, our goal is to reach as many youth as possible with this life-changing experience. Our “pay what you can” model suggests a program rate based on your income, with an aggressive commitment to ensuring that as many participants as possible are able to join us regardless of their ability to pay for this experience.

Session 2: June 27 – July 10
Session 4: July 11 – July 24

After attending Global Scholar, I now feel better prepared to make a positive impact on not only my community but the world. Global Scholar was a really wonderful program that opened my eyes to different ways to make change and think about the systems that make up our world.

It’s such a great experience. If you are or are not into international affairs, you will go back home with such confidence, with all the knowledge you had acquired through this intense program. It will build your confidence in so many ways, such as public speaking, being inclusive, teamwork, support and so much!
