WHY A GLOBAL LEADERSHIP DAY?
The goal of the JUMP! Global Leadership Day is to provide an opportunity for students in the wider community to come together and explore the idea of leadership in a globalized, multicultural context. Students will consider how leadership skills, critical thinking, conflict resolution and confidence factor into being a community leader. Students leave the program with an awareness of their own leadership style and how to put important leadership skills and tools into action in their personal lives, communities, and future careers.
Create a safe space for students to discover who they are as individuals, community members and global citizens. Engage students in the development of personal leadership skills. Introduce students to personal development models they can incorporate into their lives.
Provide tools and techniques for communication, conflict resolution, and collaboration. Empower students to take leadership roles in a supportive community.

THE JUMP! DIFFERENCE
All JUMP! Programs are created through the lens of experiential education, a holistic approach to learning in which an individual is exposed to new activities, cultures, ideas, and environments. To harness the learning potential, all JUMP! programs utilize reflection and intention-based learning as a means for an individual to solidify his/her unique experience.
