Shawn Mendes has teamed up with Global Citizen to launch a pioneering program aimed specifically at teaching leadership skills to high school graduates worldwide.
Called the Global Citizen Academy, grads across the globe will be granted access to the Minerva Project – a virtual platform specializing in educational and innovative programs. The Academy will also offer virtual lesson plans aimed at bolstering future leaders to help them build “powerful and practical skills for a lifetime of social impact.”
The course, which includes lectures from global leaders, runs from early September to mid-December. The deadline to apply is July 30th.
The singer launched the Shawn Mendes Foundation Scholarship, which will offer up to $250,000 in grants to allow those who would otherwise find the tuition cost-prohibitive.
