Educatius International is currently working with a group of 57 high school Japanese students who were hand selected by the Tokyo Board of Education and the Japanese government for a leadership program. They have been in the U.S since August and have been attending schools throughout Michigan.
Educatius International is organizing a farewell camp for them when the school year is over at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor from June 23-27, 2016. The theme this year is all about global leadership. The goal is for the students to understand global citizenship and what it takes to be a leader.
The hope is to have to have local business owners, professors and students come lecture to the students from the 24th to the 26th from 9-5 with a break for lunch every day. Ideally, each speaker would talk for an hour and engage the students in discussion afterwards. The speakers can talk about anything relating to global leadership, global citizenship or globalization. The Tokyo Board of Education wants the students to go back to Japan with the knowledge of what he or she as an individual can do to help be part of a positive change for Japan after their experience in the US.
The key takeaway should be for the students to understand the skills it takes to be a leader within the international context, as well as how they can acquire and develop these skills and the steps they need to take as high school students to develop themselves as leaders here and now.
If you or anyone you know who would like to come speak to the students for around an hour either on Saturday June 25th in the afternoon or Sunday June 26th in the morning please contact Courtney Kellogg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-651-3387.
