A global movement of active and high impact young leaders transforming themselves and communities for good.
Global Potential transforms youth from underserved communities through education, service learning and cultural exchange into globally competitive leaders of positive change in their lives and communities.
In 7 years of operation, Global Potential has refined its winning methodology. Our program is composed of 3 dynamic phases over a period of 17 months: preparation and mentoring for 6 months; cultural immersion in a rural village for 6.5 weeks; and integration and mentoring to fully absorb what was learned.
GP fellows first participate in 6 months of weekly workshops with other youths, volunteers and staff. Workshops are based on a 4 module curriculum: global preparedness, social entreprenesurship, community service, and advocacy.
Let’s start with the folks responsible for making Our Program a success on a daily basis. And, since there’s only so much room on this page, please head on over to our Team page to meet the rest of the gang!
