Customized High School Workshops

GYLI offers customized programs and workshops for schools to engage students, teachers, administrators, and Boards in experiential and reflective sessions that explore our four pillars:

  •  Collaborative Leadership
  •  Multi-Cultural Identity
  •  Religious Pluralism
  •  Environmental Sustainability

Programs can focus on the four pillars together or we can customize a program to highlight specific topics that are relevant to your school community. We have done multi-day, full-day and partial-day programs for a variety of schools and are able to tailor our content to fit within each time frame.
