Developed by Inspire Citizens co-founders, Steve Sostak and Aaron Moniz, the Inspire Citizens Global Student Leadership Toolkit guides students in applying future skills, critical thinking frameworks, and global and intercultural competencies to contextualize and lead community projects for greater equity, collective wellbeing, and sustainable development.
Built around flexible lessons for more than 50 culturally-responsive, sustainability-focused, systems-thinking tools and skills, the Global Student Leadership Toolkit can be embedded by any educator into human and environmentally-centered curricular units of study, inquiry, or project-based learning.
The second-tiered Global Student Leadership Certificate program supports all ages of students in making an intentional commitment to the conservation of local and global environments, empowerment of diverse local and global communities, as well as personal development. The certificate is granted through evidence-based portfolios that capture deep thinking, applied learning, and compassionate action which highlight a longer-term commitment to enhance the wellbeing and sustainable development of a community.
Principles and pillars of the toolkit and certificate program are built to work in synergy with the Inspire Citizens Empathy to Impact Project Cycle (Care, Aware, Able, Impact). The toolkit and certificate supports enduring understanding in for key civic pathways:
· Leadership and Collaboration
· Community Engagement
· Sustainable Development
· Systemic Transformation
The Inspire Citizens Global Student Leadership Toolkit and Certificate is a foundational pedagogical element of the ten-pathway Inspire Citizens Global Impact School model and self-study.
