  • Do you think you might have leadership potential?
  • Do you like to learn about people and issues in other countries?
  • Do you wonder how you can give back to your local community and around the globe?
  • Do you want to know how to bring about change or action on an issue?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions you should attend the NIU Global Leadership & Philanthropy Camp and advance your knowledge of the larger world around you.

The camp will treat you as a future global leader and philanthropist. It will develop your understanding of the world, help strengthen your personal skills, and challenge you to work with others in a variety of creative activities involving leadership, global issues and philanthropy. The camp will also develop a plan of action and provide resources for students interested in becoming leaders in their local communities or on a global issue after camp is over. Camp will culminate with a fun field trip/volunteer day that will highlight and apply everything that has been covered during the week.

Summer Camp Fees: Residential campers $TBA ($TBA after June 3, 2016)
