A future where underserved youth are equipped with the tools and leadership skills needed to solve some of the most challenging problems in their communities, and in the world.
Student Global Ambassador Program (SGAP Leaders) is a leadership program that empowers our underserved youth (ages 13-18) to take action on real-world problems by using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to solve sustainability and social justice challenges.
Our in-person and virtual workshops, tours and speaker series provide a vehicle for students to develop college and career readiness skills. Students choose the themes for our program which ranges from climate change, teen suicide and mental wellness, to human trafficking (to name a few).
In addition, our workshops challenge students from different schools, regions and countries to think critically around real issues that affect real lives; as a result they develop leadership and team building skills; and through the process, they gain a voice and feel empowered.
All our programs may be presented Virtually Or In-Person
