The networks built through the GYLA experience include university student leaders and young professionals from various backgrounds. The expanded networks also include significant leaders from all sectors engaged throughout the programs. The overarching leadership strategy of GYLA programs is collaboration – bridging traditional institutional barriers.
The unprecedented challenges and opportunities in this increasingly interconnected world require leadership with far reaching vision. GYLA programs are grounded in the awareness of our connectedness, responsibility, and the power of relationships
Programs are not theoretical, but are built upon direct experience with international delegates; with exemplary leaders; and with powerful institutions and venues. First-hand experience generates a sense of connection and ownership - beyond an observer’s perspective.
