Upper School Institute

Elevating Your Leadership Brand

The GLI Summer Institute for students entering grades nine and ten offers greater immersion in real-life experiences and challenges. Participants will conduct a comprehensive self-assessment of their leadership strengths and challenges to create an action plan for leadership growth and goal execution. As they tackle outdoor ventures, case studies and team-building challenges, they will deepen their understanding of ethical decision making, negotiating difficult situations, building group cohesion, inspiring and motivating others, delivering and receiving feedback and having an impact on their communities. Together, they will apply the design-thinking process to create innovative solutions to real-world problems, even as they embrace the value of productive struggle. Daily reflection with a personal mentor is a vital part of the learning experience.

Going to the Girls’ Leadership Institute was a wonderful experience for me. I learned a lot about leadership and how I react in different situations.

Participating in GLI has helped me greatly, and I will never forget the experiences I had there and all the new friends I made. - Upper School participant
