Internship Overview

The Young Leaders Global Summit gives students aged 12-18 a 360-degree experience of what it takes to be a successful leader in today’s globalised world. Over the course of 5 days, you will work with highly-successful leaders, including the astronaut Major Tim Peake and a high-profile MP, to gain the key skills required to be a leader in any field: innovation, team-building, negotiation, public speaking, strategy and critical thinking. Throughout the Summit you will be immersed in a variety of interactive simulations designed to develop these core leadership qualities. 

The Summit will be delivered ‘Live Online’ so you can participate from the comfort of your own home. Each of the five days will be led by industry experts from globally-significant fields like technology, business, politics and sport, and close with a keynote speech from powerful leaders such as Major Tim Peake.

Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful global leader.

All students will be streamed into two groups: one for ages 12-14 and one for ages 15-18. You can choose whether to attend all 5 days or only the first 3. Major Tim Peake will be speaking on day 4.
