     Two Ways to Experience

    SINGLE SESSION

    This option consists of 75 minutes of programming. Half of the content is video based, while the other half is intentional discussion time and activities that generate deeper conversation. The single session option can be used in many ways: quarterly leadership development with your group, single sessions held during one of your usual gathering times; the choice is ultimately yours. There are four single sessions to choose from; you can purchase them all at once or one at a time. 

    WHAT’S INCLUDED?

    • Access to one of the single sessions.
    • Activity guide to accompany your selected session.

    FULL TRAINING DAY

    This option is designed to use all four GLS Next Gen sessions in one setting. The heartbeat behind the training day is to have your students lead and execute the event. Ultimately, they are learning and leading at the same time. Student lead, adult coached. This option is best suited for groups and organizations who want to create more of a conference-style experience to open to a larger community.   

    WHAT’S INCLUDED?

    • Access to all 4 sessions.
    • Next Gen Tool Kit providing everything you need to run and promote your event.
