Global Action Through Engagement (GATE) is an interactive global leadership program for high school students. From July 16-19, 2014 on the campus of UW-Milwaukee, participants will be introduced to global issues through interactive simulations, small group activities, and thought-provoking discussions with speakers and university students. This year, students will focus on the global theme of human rights, with an emphasis on identity and community in local, regional and global contexts.
It is an opportunity for students to deepen global engagement and understanding, develop leadership skills, and build college and career skills in cross-cultural communication, critical thinking, conflict resolution, and digital and media literacy.
More information and a registration application are available at http://www.gate.uwm.edu.
Please note: A limited number of need-based scholarships are available!
