Mission: The International Institute For Global Leadership is a tuition-free, internet based education program which provides a curriculum in consciousness designed to prepare students to become personally empowered, consciously aware, high-integrity and heart-centered leaders in their communities and the world. The study program is open to participants of any age and from anywhere in the world.
Results: We currently have 125 students from 27 countries. We currently average shipping over 500 books a year to our students and have shipped over 2,800 books related to personal empowerment to our students over the past seven years for which they are required to write an assessment as to how the information affects their day-to-day life. Each of their profiles, photos and book assessments are posted on our website.
Target demographics: Although our studies are available to anyone of any age, anywhere in the world, most of our current students are young Africans in their 20's $ 30's.
Geographic areas served: International
Programs: The program is divided into different levels of study. The introductory level consists of two small books which are emailed to the student. When these have been completed, the student enters Level One studies. Levels One & Two – which focus on personal empowerment - consist of seven books each. Level Three, devoted to personal assessment and goal setting, consists of written exercises. In Levels Four, Five & Six a student may choose seven books for each level from a selection of more than 400 books in 17 subject areas. The upper levels offer students many opportunities for advanced guided studies, internships, etc. according to their personal interests and life goals. More details about each level are available on the curriculum page of our website: http://www.global-leadership.com/curriculum/index.htm
I began mentoring in 2003 shortly after IIGL was formed. Over the years, it has been an enriching experience both as a volunteer and since 2013 as Director. I view IIGL as one global family; even though we are thousands of miles apart; we are connected by our mission to serve as like minded leaders. I am proud of and for our students who demonstrate that "one book can change one's life!" Check us out at: www.global-leadership.com
I am so grateful to know this organization. I get much joy in watching the students grow and express their gifts and talents for the betterment of humankind. I see that their eyes open to the greater vision for humanity and this wonderful planet we are so blessed to be nurtured by. The graduated studies of IIGL supports these students to become the greater of themselves. It deserves more and more accolades.
