More young people have a chance to enrol in a study course in the United States.

A limited number of positions have been made available for Bermuda students to attend the Global Young Leaders Programme in Atlanta this summer — a three-week course designed to support a new generation of leaders.

The Brandon Hall School announced last month it had offered partial scholarships for up to ten Future Leaders Bermuda participants, but spaces are now being made available for those outside of the programme.

Ryan Robinson Perinchief, the founder and director of FLB, said: “Thanks to the graciousness of Brandon Hall, all students from Bermuda who are accepted into the programme will benefit from the same financial scholarships available to Future Leaders — regardless of whether they have completed our local programme.

“However, all students will still be expected to fundraise a certain amount on their own in order to demonstrate their commitment.”

Brandon Hall’s Global Youth Leadership in Action programme culminates in the Gylia International Conference, where student entrepreneurs will present their ideas on stage to an audience of local, national and global participants.

Last year’s study-abroad trip was considered a success, with all seven students from 2019 presenting ideas addressing issues related to Bermuda.

Since then, two FLB members have made their project ideas a reality.

Mckenzie-Kohl Tuckett has established GirlEmpower to promote the education, empowerment and equality of women, and Jaiden Furbert-Jacobs has launched 441 Ocean Beach Cleanups to help preserve Bermuda’s marine environment.

Mr Robinson Perinchief added: “The Global Young Leaders course is three-weeks long and packed with seminars, field experiences and guest speakers.

“We have no doubt that studying leadership and social entrepreneurship at Brandon Hall’s overseas campus is a great opportunity for personal development.

“We look forward to selecting students from the general public to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Those interested in attending should register online at futureleaders.bm/studyabroad before the end of February
