Commitment to Action

Peace Education - Economic Opportunity via Global Leadership

Commitment by

Genesis at the Crossroads

In 2012, Genesis at the Crossroads committed to create a scalable model for peace education: the Genesis Academy for Global Leadership, a new boarding school in Chicago that will provide a trans-disciplinary education to local, at-risk youth and a diverse array of American and international students. This unique, living-learning environment will allow 100 students in its first year to define their own leadership with a greater consciousness to promote creativity, encourage personal growth, resolve conflict, and recognize the value of cross-cultural, collaborative learning and achievement. Genesis at the Crossroads envisions the Genesis Academy for Global Leadership curricula as both an educational venue and a lab for academic research and studies on creative education through linkages with universities and learning centers in Chicago and the nation.
