About the speaker
Esther Simba, affectionately known as Mama Simba, is an award-winning educator, community organizer and advisor to the Peace Corps. She currently directs cross-cultural service-learning programs for high school students with organizations like Global Leadership Adventures.
This webcast is hosted by Global Leadership Adventures.
Global Leadership Adventures was founded in 2003 by Fred Swaniker, a native of Ghana, TED Fellow and educational entrepreneur whose work has been praised by President Barack Obama. Born as a global extension of the revolutionary African Leadership Academy, Global Leadership Adventures now operates 48 programs for high school students centered around leadership and sustainable community service projects, in 20 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America. Through life-changing adventures, we strive to inspire the next generation to realize their potential to transform the world and their role in it.
Combining service-learning with leadership development
Global Leadership Adventures started as an educational institute, so we continue to think and act like educators—not tour operators—as we deliver life-changing programs. We intentionally weave a leadership curriculum into the daily experience on our programs. Through group discussion, meaningful service, workshops, speakers and excursions, staff guide students to reflect on program events through the lens of leadership, and celebrate outstanding examples of leaders they encounter in the local community. Lending this context to the experience creates development and growth opportunities for students to dig deep into their vision, purpose and knowledge of themselves and the world.
