The year-long Global Citizen Corps Leadership program works with 1,500 youth leaders. We spread the word about root causes of critical global issues to thousands of our peers, mobilize others to make a difference and embrace a life of global citizenship. Over one year, leaders work with Mercy Corps to obtain the training, knowledge, resources and tools to raise awareness and organize effective local actions that make a global impact. Leaders mobilize their schools and communities around a series of Global Action Days, which connect to international campaigns. Leaders connect with each other through an interactive online forum to discuss issues on-line with others around the globe, in live video conferences and global youth summits. Leaders will gain skills in four areas: Action Planning, Leadership Development, Multi-Media and Global Issues. With this training, leaders will have the knowledge and skills to organize powerful actions that address the problems such as Public Health, Food Security, Climate Change, Education and Peace and Conflict. We believe that Awareness + Action = Impact. We can change the world!
