Global Youth Leadership in Action

Please be aware that Summer Program dates are subject to change depending on enrollment. 


Instead of being told how or what to think, you were encouraged to explore issues with limitless boundaries?


In collaboration with “Chief Curiosity Curator”, Matt Murrie, Brandon Hall offers an intensive and immersive summer program that seeks to find the most inspired, self-motivated, and resilient youth that are active and primed to create positive change around the globe.


Matt Murrie, a Columbia University graduate and a writer, professor, and TEDx speaker, uses his decade-long experience of teaching in five countries on three different continents, to explore the power of applying a “What if…?” approach to everyday situations.


Students can expect to engage with a challenging curriculum and experiential projects and will be given the opportunity to explore how asking questions rather than looking for answers can often lead to more satisfying, sustainable, and genuine solutions.


Our summer program culminates with the Global Youth Leadership in Action™ (GYLIA) #Whatif 360 Summit. All student entrepreneurs will present their ideas via pitches and formal presentations live at the GYLIA-19 event. This one-of-a-kind event attracts a live audience of local, national, and global participants. We believe in the power of youth to change the world for the better.
