An innovative and unique leadership program designed for highly motivated, intellectually curious students who are interested in social issues and creating positive change.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed by the enormity and complexity of the many challenges demanding our attention: environmental destruction, health crisis, wars, poverty, economic uncertainty, and social inequality. The Project offers a learning environment that encourages exploration, discussion, and personal growth.
