ECS joins with Global Next to offer International Leadership opportunities for high school students. The purpose of the program is to develop unique leaders who view the world Biblically and want to leave a legacy by being a part of something bigger than themselves. The purpose of the International Leadership trip is to collect unique research and insights from around the world and to use that information in domestic educational conferences and international student leadership conferences.
High school students can apply to attend student leadership trips to Europe and Asia. These leadership conferences are conducted by Global Next under the direction of Dr. Phil Johnson (www.globalnext.org). The ECS trips for 2015-2016 are:
Paris, France, November 13-19, 2015 and Beijing, China, March 9-16, 2016.
