Learn with Leaders (LwL) is recognized for conducting exceptional programs for high school students around the world, and this time they have entered into a first-of-its-kind partnership with the Harvard Model Congress Asia (HMCA). This class-apart collaboration will provide high schoolers a podium to comprehend current affairs and politics surrounding the U.S. government and international political bodies through simulations.
“Through HMCA, we offer a space to high school students to interact freely with Harvard students and peers from around the globe. This space is where we discuss world politics, have healthy debates, understand how the government functions, break cross-cultural barriers, and expand our intellectual aptitudes. We want these students to be able to articulate their thoughts and have productive debates with the confidence required of a leader,” said Georgia Steigerwald, President, HMCA.
Lauren Anderson, Vice President, HMCA, said, “The participating members of the July 2021 Workshop will get specialized training and an exclusive insight into the running of HMCA’s January 2022 Workshop. In addition, these students will get a chance to practice their skills with HMCA staff in the July 2021 Workshop and form connections with global students.”
HMCA is a nonprofit, student-led association of Harvard who are focused on fostering an educational experience for the next generation of students and helping them transform into global leaders. They offer interactive programs to high schoolers, including a government simulation conference, immersing students in fascinating and relevant issues while practicing their public speaking, negotiation, and critical thinking skills. Moreover, with one-to-one feedback, high school students receive guidance and direction for their future.
HMCA has been providing immersive educational programs to high school students since 2004. Their collaboration with Learn with Leaders will help widen the program’s outreach to include diverse students from various countries, cultures, and backgrounds. The workshop, which begins in July, has opened its applications for students and is gathering tremendous responses from students across the world.
“Learn with Leaders has been on a mission to democratize education, and partnering with HMCA is a step towards success. The HMCA July 2021 Workshop is an excellent prospect for high school students to express themselves and share their thoughts while gaining perspective from listening to others. Students get a global podium to discuss current affairs through mock sessions with worldwide peers and Harvard students. We are thrilled to introduce this workshop for the sheer scope it has to expand thought-processes and build future leaders,” said Gunjan Aggarwal, Co-founder, Learn with Leaders.
Learn with Leaders is systematically developing dynamic programs, webinars, workshops, and events to bring Ivy-League quality education to global high school students. The organization is tied up with schools across 30 different countries and is offering a bright chance for these students to learn from international faculty. With the HMCA July 2021 Workshop, LwL is accelerating its trajectory towards building a global students league.
“World-over people believe that the world’s future lies in the hands of the next generation, and nurturing and guiding these hands is of utmost importance. The HMCA July 2021 Workshop with LwL is truly a foundation on which we aim to foster potential global leaders. We are giving students hands-on experience to an absolute understanding of the workings of the government, political organizations, and civic bodies. This platform can transform students’ lives, inculcating new ways of thinking and comprehending public issues and finding solutions through equitable resources,” said Bejoy Suri, Co-founder, Learn with Leaders.
The HMCA July 2021 Workshop will begin on July 10th, 2021, and will be conducted over two weekends. Details of the workshop are available on the Learn with Leaders official website.
