About the Global Young Leaders Conference China: The Pre-College Excursion
World Experiences for Future College Students
How do you plan to spend the summer before starting college? The Global Young Leaders Conference China: The Pre-College Excursion provides you with the opportunity to kick-start your new academic endeavor, with a trip-of-a-lifetime to China. While attending, you will have the rare opportunity to be exposed to the self-sufficiency and responsibility that comes with going to college.
GYLC China is a 10-day celebratory, yet educational journey to China, where through interactive modules, students will sharpen interpersonal competencies and gain a more global perspective by engaging with students and people from around the world. Through combining unique cultural immersion and site visits, you will enhance your intercultural skills, confidence, and intrapersonal skills.
GYLC China gives students the opportunity to go beyond the typical tourist itinerary and experience these three unique cities (Beijing, Xi’an, and Shanghai) in engaging and exciting ways. Through discussion-based learning, such as modules that are designed to organically integrate into travel time and cultural experiences, students will be armed with a general consciousness of key interpersonal skills that are directly correlated to college success.
By completing this program, you are eligible to receive college credit from George Mason University.
