Leadership Series and Team Building Workshops
Motivated middle and high school student leaders develop and ultimately present an action plan/proposal for the upcoming SGAP Global Experience. Over five months, students meet via conference calls, in person, and virtually with their respective team and sub-team.
Each session weaves in the theme of the 2030 sustainable development goals as defined by the United Nations. Student leaders selected the SGAP theme, develop the objectives, identify the audience and determine how best to convey their message to each group. They also design the day-of-activities and the expected outcome of the student experience. In the process, each student acquires team building skills, leadership skills, and keen presentation skills. Notwithstanding, they also have fun!
Each face to face session includes an interactive component which fosters leadership, team spirit, and community outreach.
