SEGL in London – Summer 2018!

THINK ONE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD?  THEN JOIN THE SEGL SUMMER ETHICS AND LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE…THIS SUMMER, IN LONDON!

Do you want the best possible opportunity to improve your leadership skills?

Do you want leading change makers as your guides?

Do you want to make life-long friends who care about the world as deeply as you do?

Then join us in London this summer for an incredible experience you won’t find anywhere else: SEGL’s Summer Ethics and Leadership Institute!

Please note: Due to the success of our Capital Campaign, we are renovating our DC residence in Summer 2018.  This means we will not offer our DC Summer Institute next summer.  Instead, SEGL is moving its five-week Summer Institute to London, England. 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Why did the United Kingdom vote to “Brexit” the European Union?  How did it achieve historic reconciliation in Northern Ireland?  What is the best way for the nation to interact with the Trump Administration?  These are the types of questions challenging British and American leaders today.  This summer they will challenge you, too.

Using London as an interactive classroom, SEGL’s Summer Ethics and Leadership Institute will provide students with tools to confront urgent global issues and effect positive change in our world.

The program is for a hand-picked group of rising high school juniors and seniors from across the country.  The program is intentionally small in order to create the best environment for participants to build a tight-knit community, enhance collaboration skills, and learn from one another and our roster of guest experts.

Throughout the five-week program, students visit think tanks, NGOs, and government offices, meet with British leaders and experts, and enhance their public speaking, debate, and collaborative skills.  Along the way, they will see the most memorable London sites!

THE CURRICULUM

At the Summer Ethics and Leadership Institute, you will study a range of global ethical dilemmas and the responses of the international community.  You will meet with the very people who work on these issues, often presenting your work to them for evaluation.  Would you like to argue for Brexit against a politician who campaigned to stay in the European Union? Do you want to discuss the relationship between the Queen and Parliament with a sitting Member of Parliament? Would you like to present and defend your policy memo to an expert on the warring former British colonies of India and Pakistan?  Then this is the program for you.

At the end of your time with us, you will produce three capstone projects: an ethical Credo, a collaborative policy document, and a business plan for a social venture that you will launch in your community after your time in London.  These projects are extraordinary ways to demonstrate your ability and growth to colleges, the wider world, and–most important–yourself.

LOCATION

Through a partnership with Anglo Accommodations, which works extensively with U.S. colleges and universities, students and faculty will stay together in self-contained, side-by-side townhouses, located in the centrally-located London borough of Westminster.

Westminster is home to many classic London attractions, from Buckingham Palace to Abbey Road to 10 Downing Street. Our accommodations are two blocks from the nearest London Underground station, offering us easy access to the best the city has to offer.

PROGRAM DATES AND TRANSPORTATION

Participants will meet in our U.S. gateway airport on June 23rd  and will return on July 28th.  

SEGL will arrange air transportation to and from each participant’s home airport; for safety and scheduling reasons students may not make their own travel arrangements.  Faculty will accompany students from the gateway airport to London and back to the gateway airport.
