About The Event

Oakridge International School Newton Campus, Hyderabad, in partnership with the prestigious Punahou School, Hawaii, USA brings you the opportunity to participate in the second edition of the Oakridge Student Global Leadership Institute (Oakridge SGLI) and be inducted into an elite network of young global leaders with a mission to create a better future.

 

What is Student Global Leadership Institute?

The Student Global Leadership Institute was launched by the Punahou School, Hawaii, in 2010 with a mission to develop a community of international youth leaders who understand common global issues and to encourage positive action toward social change. The program is made possible by generous grants from the Edward E. Ford Foundation and the Education Research Initiative (a partnership of Lenovo, Intel and Microsoft), with additional support from the Freeman Foundation, the Luke Center for Chinese Studies, Stephen E. and Isabella H. Stevens World Peace Foundation.

Student delegations from schools across the world have participated in SGLI since 2010. Past program themes have been:

The Program objectives are:

  • To develop a community of international youth leaders who understand and are engaged in shared global challenges to galvanize positive social changes.
  • To Explore leadership development through problem-solving, collaboration, communication and multicultural encounters – always anchored by a central theme of global concern.
  • To Build empathy and ability to connect across cultures which is central to SGLI’s mission
  • To get the participants attuned to the nuances of a global world that will reflect an emerging community of dynamic leaders working for a healthier and understanding world

 

What would Oakridge SGLI 2017 entail?

Since 2016, Oakridge has started a Hyderabad chapter of SGLI called OakridgeSGLI. The theme for Oakridge SGLI 2017 is Peace. This yearlong program will commence in Hyderabad with an intensive two-week summit at Oakridge International School, during which students will participate in workshops, discussions and field trips that will help them develop social-action projects suitable for their home cities, and the collaborative style of leadership needed to carry them out. The students would be required to implement their projects during their senior year, aided by a customized computer network that allows them to track their progress, support one another through online discussions, broaden their social perspective and exchange ideas with different cultures. A diverse network of mentors, including faculty, non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs, would provide support.

 

Why Peace is the theme of Oakridge SGLI 2017?

Learning across cultures is significant in creating a platform for students to broaden their perspectives and to work towards making the world a better place. Students of this generation have an important role to play as peacebuilders of the nation. The SGLI program gives the young children an opportunity to work in groups on peacebuilding projects and help their understanding in conflict resolution. 

Let us build bridges not walls – our focus through this program will be to bridge connections across cultures and promote multicultural understanding for a better tomorrow. The following aspects of Peace would be explored:
