GYLI Youth Leadership Exchange with India

Commitment by

Global Youth Leadership Institute

In 2010, Global Youth Leadership Institute (GYLI) committed to launch a two-way educational exchange program between USA and India for high school students and teachers. GYLI will enroll two groups of teachers and students, one group from the US and one from India, to stay in each other's country for a 10-day educational exchange. Participants will visit environmental and educational organizations in both countries, stay with local families, interact with the community, and work on established, locally run environmental projects. GYLI will monitor the students' responses to the program by encouraging all participants to create a Leader Learning Plan that will guide both their exchange and their transition back home. Through this initiative, GYLI hopes to foster leadership development, global pluralism, environmental sustainability, and positive social change.
