In 9 years of operation, Global Potential has refined its winning methodology. Our program is composed of 3 dynamic phases over a period of 15 months: preparation and mentoring for 6 months; cultural immersion in a rural village for 45 days; 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 entrepreneurship, community service, and advocacy.
GP fellows experience 1.5 months immersed in a rural village in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, or Senegal.
