2019 AMBASSADOR LEADERSHIP SUMMIT
You can join other young leaders from as many as 140 countries to develop leadership skills and prepare for college. Above all else, the summits prepare student leaders to be responsible, successful global citizens–a must-have skill for today’s workforce.
By providing access to influential leaders, prestigious universities and skill-building workshops, the summit experience can help you:
- Unlock leadership potential and build confidence by engaging and learning with other high-achieving students from across the U.S. and the world.
- Expand global awareness and learn how they can make a difference in their community by developing a meaningful Community Action Plan.
- Gain a competitive edge for college admissions, and get firsthand experience in their future careers, while staying on campuses of top universities such as Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins and UCLA.
Students that are nominated will receive a Certificate of Recognition and a personal invitation to participate in a summit. After being accepted, students can apply for scholarships.
Students in 9th – 11th grades who demonstrate scholastic achievement, leadership potential, and the ability to take initiative to affect positive change see Mrs. Britt for details.
