Frequently Asked Questions

To be considered for financial aid or scholarship we ask that you submit a written essay or create a 3-4 minute video that answers these 3 questions when you submit your online application:
1. Why are you interested in attending the Powerful Youth’s leadership training programs?
2. What sort of clubs, social activities, service, or sports have you been involved with and why?
3. What is a strength that you have already as a leader?
Feel free to be creative and fun, but make sure to answer the questions as best you can. The file can be uploaded to this site by using the File upload button below. Since videos are too large to upload, please send us a link to a YouTube, Vimeo, or some other video hosting site to

The Global Leadership Academy is open and encourages all young adults around the world to apply. Our only requirements for admission are that you will be between the ages of 15 to 18 years old by the time that you attend the program.
All instruction is done in ENGLISH, however we do not have English language requirements as we are an experienced based program. We do suggest that students have at least a proficient level of English, or the ability to speak and understand short statements/questions, but this is not a requirement.

Youth will stay on campus in school dorm rooms with capacity for 4 students. Each room is large enough for each participant to have their own bed, dresser, desk, and closet space. We assign students to dorms according to gender and to promote diversity, we reserve the right to decline all requests to stay in the same room with someone you may know.
