The Global Leadership Program at Pearl S. Buck International for students from grades 9-11 is designed to help young adults become better students, college applicants, and global citizens. Students build relationships and learn vital skills such as team communication, cultural awareness, creativity, community service, leadership, goal setting and decision making in a group setting with teens from multiple high schools and differing backgrounds.

Participants put their newly acquired skills to use working collaboratively on a service project of their choice, with proceeds going to help marginalized children in one of Pearl S. Buck International's overseas programs. At the completion of the program, students and their families celebrate their success at a graduation ceremony, knowing that they have made a contribution to the world.

Class size is limited, so students should register without delay by going to www.pearlsbuck.org/leadership.

Fall 2018 Global Leadership Program dates*: Application deadline is September 18; Parent and student orientation is October 9; Class schedule runs from October 14 thru December 11; Graduation ceremony is December 14.

The Global Leadership Program is supported by the generosity of Comcast.
