Introducing the GCI LEAD Challenge 2021 Faculty and Speakers

We are honored to share our Faculty and Speakers who will join us to add color and depth to our upcoming GCI LEAD Challenge 2021!


In less than a week, 36 exceptional secondary school students will join GCI for the first GCI LEAD Challenge, a virtual 6-day program that focuses on Leadership, Ethics, Advocacy, and Design Thinking. This innovative addition to GCI's programming is spearheaded by top educators and advocates who will help participants build key leadership skills and explore thought-provoking ideas, while encouraging them to take their learning beyond the classroom.


Faculty from Phillips Exeter Academy will facilitate Harkness®* academic sessions, a core component from GCI's flagship program, the Summit. Our faculty member from Robert College will lead students to develop a collaborative group project and create an advocacy campaign around a chosen non-profit organization. Throughout the week, each day’s discussions and activities will be complemented by speakers who motivate, create space for reflection, compel action and stimulate creative ideas.
