GLOBAL LEADERSHIP SUMMIT OPPORTUNITY
The United Nations Association Global Leadership Summit in Washington D.C. is now less than 2 months away. Every year, UNA-USA outreaches to thousands of students across the United States to help develop their leadership skills and connect them with a network of globally-minded professionals and community members.
At this year’s Summit (taking place on June 9-11, 2019), students will be able to connect with other United Nations diplomats, civic leaders, and advocates from across the United States. In addition, students will be given the opportunity to conduct hands-on advocacy on Capitol Hill with other notable lawmakers and their staff.
We want to extend a special opportunity for students from Rhode Island to come to Washington D.C. to take their advocacy and leadership skills to the next level. If students are interested in participating in this year’s Global Leadership Summit, they should be sure to fill out our scholarship interest form - entries are due by April 28, 2019 at 11:59 EST. The scholarships help to cover the cost of transportation and housing.

Global Studies and the Peace Corps
Bryant alumna Claire Gracia ('18) joined the Peace Corps in Peru in September of this year. Here is the message she sent about her current work:
"In just another week, I’ll be finishing up Pre-Service Training and will be moving to my site for the next two years! I’m heading to Pedro Ruiz Gallo, an urban town in the center of Amazonas, in Northern Peru. Over the past three months, I have been learning about sustainable development, Peruvian culture, and the Youth Development framework. I’ve had a chance to practice my Spanish with my host family and classes at training. As a Youth Development Facilitator, I will be working with the local municipality, schools and health posts to promote leadership and employability in youth, support youth led projects and work with parents to improve communication with their children. I’m excited to move to my new community and start working!"
