All over the world, youth are advocating for change both locally and globally. Through the Brown Leadership Institute—no matter your current level of engagement—you’ll increase your ability and effectiveness in advancing social justice.
There are two ways to participate in the Leadership Institute:
- a two-week on-campus session
- a four-week online session
Through both methods of learning, you’ll meet students from all over the world who are passionate about a wide variety of issues, including topics such as racial justice, educational access, and gender equity. You will spend your days delving into compelling topics in a course of your choosing, actively engaging with your peers and instructor. As you grapple with complex problems and brainstorm possible solutions together, you will practice a collaborative model of leadership honing your skills in active listening, public speaking, problem-solving, conflict resolution, and teamwork. Building on all of this new knowledge, you’ll develop an Action Plan you can take home and apply in your school or community. (Wondering what this looks like? Check out past examples.)
