AUIS welcomed over 90 students in the past few weeks to participate in the Future Leaders Program. This week long program invites students who are undecided about which university they want to attend to come and see AUIS, meet other students from the area, and participate in a project-based course.

Our students for this year focused on the themes of community, leadership, creativity, global citizenship, and creative thinking.  Students worked together to create and develop their own unique countries, including building a government, an economy, and various aspects of the culture.

As one of four teachers for this year’s program, I got to work with multiple groups. I was so very impressed by their drive, creativity, and their willingness to work so well in groups of people they had just met. The presentations at the end were very well done, and even those students who were nervous to speak in front of others managed to stand up and present. All of the instructors were proud and we look forward to working with those who choose AUIS for their university in the coming months.

We know that no matter where these students choose to go, they are motivated, creative, and team workers, and are truly young adults who will one day be leaders.
