Three Phase Program

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.


Phase 1: Preparation

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.


Phase 2: Immersion

GP fellows experience 1.5 months immersed in a rural village in Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, or Senegal.


Phase 3: Integration

This is followed by 9.5 months of individualized and group support and coaching based on the passions and abilities of each youth.
