Atlantic Global Leadership Experience - Launchpad

Have you ever thought about where great leaders come from? Are they born, are they made, or are they just lucky enough to find that opportunity to launch themselves and their great ideas onto the world?

We think it’s probably a mixture of all of those things - and also having the right launchpad to become the changemaker the world needs. That’s why we’ve called our Global Leadership Experience for 13-15 year olds just that – Launchpad. Launchpad is a fun, challenging, highly rewarding two week experience that will be an exciting testing ground for your thoughts, ideas and ambitions alongside other young people who want to change the world. We say change the world, because that is what we need. Young people who can challenge themselves to explore the global challenges that are shaping our planet, societies and people - and come up with solutions to the things that basically we have been messing up for generations.

You are the superheroes who will make the world a better place.


Programme Cost: £1,950. 

GLE is based at UWC Atlantic;a 12th Century castle by the sea in Wales. You’ll have opportunities to explore the local area and experience the beauty of South Wales and with a 122 acre site, including its own woodland, seafront, farm and valley, you’ll be able to take part in a diverse and intensive programme of activities including lifeguarding, kayaking, surfing, sailing, power boating, swimming, mountain walking, navigation, and climbing.
