Rising Leaders is a summer program designed to inspire critical thinking and global awareness in rising 7th through 10th graders. We approach a set of diverse topics – ranging from public policy and global affairs to philosophy and psychology – through debate, moot court, films, trips, and guest speakers. Our goal is to create effective thinkers and persuasive advocates. No prior experience is needed. The staff are also young and spectacular, one of whom is a global 30 under 30 leader!
The program will be held in 3 separate sessions between July 15th and August 16th at a newly renovated space by Columbia University. It runs on weekdays starting at 10:00 am so you can commute or sleep in!
