A wonderful exposure to different cultures

Being part of this leadership camp last year is a true pleasure. It was a place where people gathered from several different cultures yet with one goal in mind, to learn essential leadership skills. The coaches and the administrators were very friendly which created a very safe environment, and I can proudly say that it wasn't only me with this feeling, but all my other friends in the camp. The campus was very safe and everything was perfectly organized ranging from fun experiences to ensuring safety both on and off campus. One of my favorite parts of the camp where the holy pipe and the boat race because they forced us to work as a group to be successful, which is a very important skill, to realize that sometimes you cannot succeed on your own, you need a group to help you. It was an AMAZING experience that every student deserves to have.

Global Social Leaders, an experience not to be forgotten.

Global Social Leaders is a plethora of things, there is no denying that fact. For many, including myself, it is an unusual, exciting, and daring journey. I use the word 'unusual' without the negative connotations which may follow it; the program is unusual because when you're back at home, even a year later, you regularly realise the tremendous difference has made to both your mindset and your way of life.

Take one-hundred young individuals from all around the world, put them in the thought-provoking location which is Wellington College, and give them an encouraging, insightful and supportive team of coaches. If you do these things, the ideas, cultures, experiences and personalities of those involved will come together to produce something which upon leaving, can only be described as an unbound sense of possibility.

To those considering signing up for the Global Social Leaders programme, do it - you won't regret it. I promise that the skills you learn, and the friendships you make will stay with you, long after the programme is finished.

A Magical, Truly Life-Changing Experience

I hate to be cheesy-but GSL really did change me. I was taught to love myself and be confident, step outside my boundaries to do things I never thought I'd be able to do, and express myself and my opinions without caring what other people might think. I also met the most intelligent, kind, and inspirational people, friends who I still talk to on a regular basis even almost a year after the program and others whose advice I've carried around with me all this time. These connections made with others are so incredible; after even just two week I felt like I'd known and loved everyone for my whole life. The other participants' diverse backgrounds has also changed the way I understand the world-to meet people the same age as me but in a completely different surrounding and hear them tell their story has broadened my views. I will be forever grateful that I was chosen to be a participant and am ecstatic to be going back again as an alumni.
