Youth GLS in Kenya Prepares 120 Students for Leadership
In 2017, the GLS committee in Kenya decided to start an initiative to get educators involved and launched an experience for teachers. They were so moved, that the school administration requested leadership mentorship for their students.
One hundred twenty of the top performing students then met for weekly meetings, and bi-monthly GLS sessions and discussion. The impact was compounded. These students then initiated three projects out of inspiration from the GLS to impact their communities.
Ultimately, this initiative has given birth to the Kajiado Youth Global Leadership Summit every July.
By the year 2020, the Kenyan team plans to be in eight schools doing training in leadership. And the county government has agreed to offer one-week internships for select students going through the program. As they continue, the team plans to invite more organizations to participate.
