Anchored by a global theme to instill leadership skills in students, Student Global Leadership Institute (SGLI) is another summer program hosted by Oakridge International School in association with Punahou School, Hawaii, USA. This 2-week residential program gives an opportunity to students to work on projects in a dynamic group of international students from 10 different countries. SGLI entails several real-time experiences such as field trips across the city to niche organizations and activities, session reflection through cyanotyping, extempore, Socratic dialogue case studies, and much more. It gets them attuned to the nuances of a global world that will reflect an emerging community of dynamic leaders. This program will be conducted from 17th to 26th June.
“Our children are growing up in a volatile and uncertain world. As we speak, the careers in areas like accounting, law, medicine etc. are being disrupted by artificial intelligence. In such a world, the skills that children need to grow up with are things like entrepreneurial mindset, empathy, and the ability to have that human connection. It is very important, therefore, for parents and teachers to have a conscious effort towards strengthening the exposure of children to educational initiatives that allow children to develop these critical skills,” says DeviDutta, Vice President – Education for Oakridge.
