Through our newly launched Global Youth Leaders camp, we hope to engage Aurora youth aged 13-15 in an interactive week long leadership curriculum designed to give them the skills and competencies to act as global leaders, entrepreneurs, ambassadors, and pursue higher education opportunities.

Our program will use interactive activities to teach students a set of global competencies including Character, Citizenship, Communication, Creativity, and Culture. The program will take place for one full week during the public school summer break. Students who complete this program will also have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to attend the nationally-renowned Sister Cities International Youth Leadership Summit (in Virginia Beach from July 12-16, 2017).

One outstanding student participant per year will also be offered the opportunity to continue developing his or her skills by becoming an “Aurora Global Youth Ambassador.” This position would come with opportunities to visit Aurora’s sister cities in Adama, Ethiopia, Jaco, Costa Rica, and Seongnam City, South Korea.

Aurora Public Schools students will earn badges for the Aurora Public School’s Postsecondary Workforce Readiness Program.
