Part 1: Aspen
June 24 – June 30, 2017. Selected students and educators are required to attend all dates of the programming in Aspen.
On the Aspen Institute campus, Scholars attend seven days of seminars, tutorials, lectures, and debates.
They share in roundtable discussions with some of the most provocative thinkers, writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and change-agents from around the world.
Interactive leadership development training also prepares Scholars for the challenge ahead: creating a sustainable community change project, known as a Local Ideas Festival.
Students and Educators :
Starting in Aspen, both receive training, professional development, and participate in the Aspen Ideas Festival. Returning home,
Scholars build a broader team of students and school administrators to support the creation of a community change project.
Scholars submit a grant proposal, and complete progress, and final grant reports.
Scholars are also encouraged to seek additional funding from their community, including in-kind donations.
