2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar

Topic: TBA in the coming weeks

Thank you to all the students, parents and speakers for making the 2019 Summer Global Leadership Seminar a fantastic program! 

More information on the 2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar will be posted here in the coming weeks. 

The 2019 Summer Global Leadership Seminar brought together students from across the Philadelphia region to learn, debate and discuss crucial topics in world affairs. Last year's program was titled "The Rise of Political Populism" and featured debates, a "crisis simulation," lectures from academics and policymakers, and a culminating trip to Washington D.C.

Participants explored the rise of both left-wing and right-wing populism in countries around the world including recent examples in Venezuela and Italy, among others. Students explored the contexts and cultures of these unique case studies and applied that knowledge to current trends in America and abroad. 

Check back here in the coming weeks and months for updates regarding the 2020 Summer Global Leadership Seminar.
