Dwight Global Leaders Academy Offers Leadership Training
Taking place in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, the academy serves as leadership training for high schoolers wishing to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Summer classes used to be the exclusive domain of those students seeking to catch up with their peers, and a superior alternative to being forced to repeat a grade. However, that is increasingly no longer the case. Now, summer school is also an opportunity for students seeking a head start on their studies, as well as those looking to expand their education beyond the subjects offered in most traditional schools.
This is especially true for high school students seeking to gain a competitive advantage in the college admissions process. For students seeking to unlock the genius within, lately, the best choice has been The Dwight Global Leaders Academy, a two-week “immersive” program that will not only offer an academic leg-up, but also allow its students to develop their leadership skills. The program, which will take place between 27th of July and the 10th of August on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, will focus on hands-on and personalized learning and community service.
The Dwight Global Leaders Academy is more than just a summer program. This seasonal institute is a comprehensive, hands-on leadership program open to high school students from around the world. The academy’s educational model transforms student potential into action. It challenges the traditional, passive notion of leadership and champions innovation, enthusiasm and the unstoppable energy of young people to create beneficial change.
Last year, the academy played host to students from over 25 countries, and from every part of the United States. The participants in DGLA have gone on to attend some of the top colleges and universities both in the U.S. and abroad, such as MIT, Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Oxford.
Notable personalities such as Wyclef Jean, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, tennis star Monica Seles and former professional football player Dhani Jones have participated with The Dwight Global Leaders Academy, speaking to and mentoring the students.
The DGLA is affiliated with the Dwight Family of Schools, with satellite campuses and programs in cities around the world. There are Dwight Schools located in London, New York, Vancouver Island, Beijing and Seoul. The Dwight Schools focus on on producing the next generation of leaders and innovators who will then go on to make contribution in their local communities, on the world stage, and in every facet of the future.
The DGLA provides students critical leadership skills so that every young leader can plan, execute and promote their own unique service project and, in the process gain, critical life skills essential for university admittance and beyond.
