Social Leadership Week

An transformational leadership experience in San Pancho, Mexico

Human Connections has teamed up with Entreamigos, an internationally recognized nonprofit organization, to offer this program to an international audience. Human Connections will work with your university, administration, or group to ensure logistical support, coverage and compliance, and a seamless travel experience.  Human Connections helps you set up the trip; Entreamigos facilitates the Social Leadership Workshop.

These workshops have been thoughtfully crafted by professionals from across the world and grounded in many years of experience working in community and environmental education.

During the Social Leadership Week, students go deep to develop self-awareness and recognize how their personal beliefs and behaviors contribute to their actions, effectiveness and leadership capacity. This program combines traditional leadership training with introspective learning, helping students determine who they are and how they want to be in this world. Equipped with social leadership and life skills, students will leave this program feeling energized, empowered, and motivated to create change.

What exactly is Social Leadership?

Today, “leadership” is a catchphrase for all kinds of skills development programs. As a culture we tout the benefits of teaching leadership to our youth knowing that it will benefit their futures… But are we asking ourselves what futures we want for our youth and what kind of leaders we hope they become? Social Leadership strives not only to build leaders, but leaders who inspire us to care for our communities and the world.

GROUP REQUIREMENTS

Group sizes range from 6 to 24 participants. This experience is ideal for high school or university students, though we also offer a parallel curriculum for corporate groups.

Participants will engage in a full schedule of workshops and activities. The experience generally lasts 7 days, with 5-6 days of intensive leadership training and 1-2 days of community engagement or excursions. Contact us at info@humanconnections.org to receive a customized itinerary and budget for your group.
