MCW Global’s year-long flagship program is for participants (18 to 26), who are prepared to become leaders of positive change in their communities by giving them the tools and skills needed to transform passion into action.
The Program begins with an intensive summer retreat that facilitates leadership development, a deep understanding of global citizenship, and how to implement a project from beginning to end. The retreat is held in late July/early August in Burlington, Vermont and New York City, New York. In addition to working alongside MCW Global team members, alumni mentors, and volunteers, participants will also hear from a range of experts from academia, civil society, development, and the public and private sectors about their own community-action projects.
In an effort to make the program accessible to all participants,
- MCW Global will cover program and flight costs;
- MCW Global will also cover costs during the summer retreat (July 23- August 1, 2019), including housing, food, travel to and from the retreat venues, and any necessary supplies.
