Leadership Experience

Global Leadership Connection is an organization dedicated to putting youth leaders in a a positive spotlight. The GLC Leadership Experience is an all expense paid trip for the top 2-6 leaders from each area program. While connecting these leaders from different GLC Programs, we encourage discussions on leadership development, social involvement and how to make out world a better, more positive environment.

Since the fall of 2008 the GLC Leadership Experience has been an annual opportunity for approximately 15 students to tour around the best of what our Nations Capitol has to offer. Travel to and from Washington, D.C. is all arranged for the students in addition to transportation throughout the city and hotel stays. 

Over the years we have had the privilege of meeting Senator Charles Grassley, touring the US Capitol with the chance to view both the House and Senate Chambers. We tour The White House with Associate White House Council, Jason Green and visit The Pentagon. Nancy Winston, Vice President of Shared Hope International, graces us with a presentation on ending sex trafficking throughout the world. Other highlights include tours of the CIA, US Supreme Court, Library of Congress and a visit to Arlington Cemetery, viewing the changing of the guard at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We continue our tour to the many offerings of the Smithsonian including the National Museum of Natural History, the National Gallery of Art, the Holocaust Museum followed by World War II, Vietnam, Korean War and the Lincoln National Memorials.

Always a favorite, is our day spent enjoying all that the Georgetown District has to offer followed with a private tour of campus led by Professor Holst. After an in depth dinner conversation, our group sets off to marvel at the Monuments under the night sky. 

Each year our agenda varies slightly due to availability however we consistently include as many memorable opportunities leading to a wonderful experience growing and learning in our Nations Capitol.

Student Leaders Reflections:

Global Leadership Connection is unlike any organization I have ever been involved with. It is truly dedicated in developing strong, influential leaders, and giving them the opportunity to work, learn, and grow with people that share the same passion for leadership as they do. Global Leadership Connection helped me to understand my strengths as a leader, and provided me with encouragement and motivation to use those strengths and persevere through my weaknesses.

From the leadership conference with other schools to the interviewing process, and the award ceremony the actual Washington D.C. trip itself, it will be a lasting memory I will always treasure. I was very apprehensive going to Washington D.C., not sure of what to expect. The truth is, once I was there, I was not ready to leave. I developed a special relationship with each one of the leaders there and we instantly became like a family. This experience is nearly impossible to put in words, but in short, it is an experience I will never forget. 

I would like to personally thank everyone who contributes to this organization and cares about the youth leaders in the world. Those like you, who show their appreciation for the youth, are the kind of people that make a true difference in the world.

I am so grateful for GLC and the impact it has had on my life. It was an honor being selected to go on the Washington DC trip with the amazing students I built friendships with. It was truly an incredible experience which I will never forget. I had a blast, learned a ton, and came to know people that I will forever stay in touch with. The GLC Team should be so proud of the difference they have made in the lives of many young people across the country. The time I spent at the leadership Seminars was inspiring and unforgettable. Thank you for everything!

Being a part of the Global Leadership Connection was one of the most influential and rewarding experiences of my entire life. Our trip to our nations capitol was amazingly emotional and educational, and was an experience that will stay with me for my entire life. The quality of friends that I made on this trip is incredible, considering the fact that I have only known these students for four days. It is truly amazing what can happen when people with such great moral character and intellectual abilities come together for one unforgettable experience.
