About this Event

Visit www.harvardvision.org/GHLCApply for more details.

The Harvard Global Health and Leadership Conference encourages global health studies, disparity analysis, and community interventions. High School students are paired with Harvard undergraduates to obtain 1:1 peer-teaching and mentoring on a global health related civic project in their home communities. Students design, develop, and implement their ideas. Upon completion of these projects, the program cohort gathers at Harvard University for a weekend symposium of project presentations, networking, and learning about global health concepts, frameworks, and careers from Harvard students, faculty, and external experts. The diverse range of projects reflect the community-centered, evidence-based, and cost-effective interventions that the GHLC works with students to generate. Learning outcomes are bidirectional, fostering interdisciplinary and intergenerational collaboration between mentees and mentors. Each project provides an opportunity to educate youth, learn about issues, and support diverse communities.
