The mission of World Leadership School is to empower young leaders to find innovative solutions to the worldÕs pressing problems. This is accomplished by partnering with K-12 schools to make the shift to 21st century learning. World Leadership School helps their schools create student-centered learning environments where students learn to think critically, communicate across cultures, collaborate and find creative solutions to problems. In the process, young leaders find their voices. World Leadership School takes small steps when partnering with a new school, whether itÕs a single global program or the opportunity to coach a teacher. Over time, they build a working relationship with their school partners and, where possible, work on different levels of the school at once in order to accelerate change. World Leadership School immerses students in life-changing learning and leadership experiences; they train and coach teachers on new approaches to teaching, such as Project-Based Learning; and work with administrator teams on risk management, strategic planning, and the design of capstone projects, global diplomas and other programs. They call this their Òwhole schoolÓ approach.
