Global Citizen Year is a premier global bridge-year program designed to unleash the potential of the next generation of young Americans as authentic leaders and effective agents of change.
Each year, they recruit and train a diverse corps of high-potential graduating seniors and support them through a bridge year of service learning and leadership training in Africa, Latin America and Asia. Through a world-class training and individual apprenticeships, their Fellows develop the skills and perspectives they need to succeed in college, careers, and a global economy.
Global Citizen Year invests in emerging leaders because they know that young people who have the opportunity to explore the world, and their role within it, approach the future with the passion and purpose they need to make an impact – on our nation and our world.
If you're a junior or senior interested in applying to become a fellow, the priority deadline is fast-approaching (November 30th). The regular deadline is March 22nd. Check out Global Citizen Year's website for more information about the program and how to apply.
